Pack 317 Cub Scout Uniform Requirements

Your child should wear their uniform appropriately. The shirt should always be tucked in and orderly. They should understand the importance of representing the entire Boy Scout Organization while in uniform.. Scouts enjoy wearing their Webelos uniform. They should wear it to den meetings, pack meetings, and special pack activities. Adults can follow the Pack’s regular adult uniforming guidelines.

As Webelos progress through the 4th grade, they will likely need a new uniform shirt as they grow. This is the time to covert to the official Boy Scout Khaki Uniform Shirt, which is required by the fifth grade.

Official uniform pants, shorts, or skorts, caps and Cub Scout socks are optional. Use of these items 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.

When to Wear the Uniform

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 pack t-shirt. These are sometimes referred to as Activity Uniforms ("Class B").

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:

  • DO keep the uniform clean and in good repair. The official uniform is a sturdy, machine-washable garment that will last for years with proper care.

  • DO be sure to wear the complete uniform. A Cub Scout wearing a uniform with parts missing is not in uniform.

  • DO NOT wear non-BSA badges, awards, or insignia on the Cub Scout uniform or make any alterations to the uniform or insignia.

  • DO NOT mix uniform parts with non-uniform clothing, such as wearing a uniform cap with other clothing. The uniform should be treated as a unit—worn in its entirety, or not at all.

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.
