Why Do Cubs Wear Uniforms?

The Boy Scouts of America has always been a uniformed body. There are many reasons for this. One reason stands out above all the rest. We wear the uniform because it is a means of identifying ourselves openly with the principles to which we are committed: character development, citizenship training, and physical and mental fitness.

The fact that youth and adult members of Scouting wear a uniform doesn't mean that we're all alike. We come from different ethnic and racial backgrounds. We have our own religious beliefs and political views. We are each individuals with our own family traditions and loyalties. So the uniform is not intended to hide our individuality. But it is a way we give each other strength and support. It is a bond that ties us together in spite of our differences. It is a way of making visible our commitment to a belief in God, loyalty to country, and to helping other people.

The Scouting movement is built on positive values. As we wear the uniform, we are openly identifying ourselves with those values where everyone can see us. We stand together, not alone, in encouraging others to live by those same principles. Boys and adults alike should take pride in belonging to such a movement and wear the uniform as it is intended.

Our Pack's Uniform Policy

Our Pack requires a uniform from the waist up only. Uniforms should be worn by Cubs and adult leaders at all Den and Pack Meetings, and on any outings.

The Tiger Cub uniform is an official orange Tiger Cub T-shirt, and a Tiger Cub hat. Uniforms for Wolf, Bear, & Webelos include shirt (including appropriate patches), neckerchief, neckerchief slide, and Cub Scout or Webelos hat. Wolf and Bear Cubs wear a blue Cub Scout shirt. Webelos wear the tan Boy Scout shirt.
