Cub Scout Uniforms
Class A Uniform
The Cub Scout uniform ("Class A Uniform") is an important part of being a Cub Scout. Wearing it lets people know that the wearer is part of the Boy Scouts of America in addition to their Den and Pack. The official uniform should be worn to Pack meetings and any special Scouting activities. When you wear the full Cub Scout uniform, it shows you are a member of the team.
The official uniform for Cub Scouts includes blue Cub Scout pants or shorts and shirt with insignia for your rank. Each rank has its own cap, neckerchief and slide in the rank colors and a belt buckle to be worn with the blue Cub Scout belt as shown below. For reference on patch placement, please see the "Class A Patch Placement" document for download at the bottom of this page.
