Elective Adventures

Wearing the Uniform

Even though their uniform is not as formal as older Scouts, it is an important part of the Scouting program, especially for the young ones just starting their adventure with Scouting. It identifies the Scouts and adults as being members of a Lion den, Pack 317, and the Boy Scouts of America. Scouts enjoy wearing their Lion uniform. They should wear it to den meetings, pack meetings, and special pack activities. Adults can follow the Pack’s regular adult uniforming guidelines.

The Lion Cub Scout uniform has the following parts:

Official uniform pants, shorts, or skorts, and Cub Scout socks are optional.  Use of these items for Lions is decided by the individual family.  If not using official uniform pants/shorts, then the Scout is expected to wear solid-color blue jeans with no holes or patches.  There is no uniform inspection sheet for Lions.


In general, every Cub Scout should wear their uniform to all Cub Scouting activities, including den and pack meetings, unit outings, and any activities done with members of the den or pack. When playing sports, going to camp, or participating in other physical activities, our Pack may opt to have the Cub Scouts wear an alternate uniform, such as our activity shirt. These are sometimes referred to as "Activity" Uniforms.  

Pack leaders should provide advance notice of any occasion when the children should wear anything other than the complete uniform. Any time you are uncertain about uniform regulations, ask the den leader for guidance.

Here are some tips for wearing the uniform:

No patches go to the Lion T-shirt. Any patches for activities, they are called ‘temporary’ patches. These patches can be displayed on a red Cub Scout vest, wall display, or kept in a shoebox.
