Wearing a uniform gives Cub Scouts a sense of identification and commitment to the goals of Scouting. The awards displayed on the uniform mark significant milestones in every Scout's progress in achieving these goals and successfully practicing Scouting’s ideals.

Unless your den or pack leaders says otherwise, always wear your Field Uniform (also called the "Class A") to all Scouting activities — not only den and pack meetings, but every activity in which you take part with other Cub Scouts. The shirt should always be tucked in and orderly. Everyone should understand the importance of representing the entire Boy Scout of America organization while in uniform.

Activity Uniform (Class B)

The Activity Uniform, also known as the "Class B", is a special T-shirt that Pack 406 provides at no cost (free!) to each registered Cub Scout. These T-shirts do not replace the Field Uniform (that's how they display their hard-earned patches), but they do serve a purpose for certain occasions like summer camp.

When specifically instructed by den and pack leaders, Scouts may wear their Field Uniform (usually when a messy activity is planned). They're great for times when we want to be a group but don't want to loose or damage their uniforms with rough play and adventure.

Patch Placement

The pack will provide (at no cost) the Cub Scout adventure loops, rank badges, temporary patches, and all other award pins. You will need to attach them to the uniform, but they are provided.

Parent Pins

When your Scout earns a new rank badge like Bobcat, Tiger, Wolf, and so on, your family will be awarded a special parent pin. Parent Pins are awarded to parents in recognition of the ranks their children have earned. These are not worn on the Cub Scout uniform.

Instead, these pins are for you, the parents! You’re on this adventure too, so be sure to get yours and display them at pack events. You can even keep them on a ribbon to follow your Scout's rank journey through the years.

Uniform Inspection Checklist

Typically at the January pack meeting, we hold Uniform Inspection. This event is to remind our Scouts and their families of the purpose of the uniform in Cub Scouts.

Cub Scout uniforms serve a dual purpose: (1) Demonstrating membership in the group (everyone is dressed alike) and (2) individual achievement, with boys and girls wearing the badges they’ve earned.
