Cub Scout Uniform

Wearing a uniform gives youth and adult members a sense of identification and commitment to the goals of character development, citizenship training, and personal fitness. The awards displayed on the uniform mark significant milestones in every Scout and leader’s progress in achieving these goals and successfully practicing Scouting’s ideals.

All Cub Scouts in Pack 828 should have a uniform and wear it to our pack meetings and most formal and public events. The official uniform (or field uniform) is often called the “Class A” uniform. Pack 828 issues all new scouts a pack T-shirt (our activity uniform or “Class B” uniform). We will let you know which uniform to wear for various activities.


Pack 828 Uniform:

    •    Lion Cubs wear just the Lion hat and lion T-shirt.

    •    Tiger Cubs, Wolf Cubs, and Bear Cubs wear the standard Cub Scout blue uniform

    •    Webelos & AOL Scouts have the option of wearing the tan Scouts BSA or blue Cub Scout uniform


Additional information on the Cub Scout Uniform can be found here.


Where and how to attach the insignia

The insignia can be sewn on by hand or with a sewing machine, or they can be adhered with a permanent double-sided membrane called “Badge Magic” (sold at Scout Shops). While Cub Scout patches often have a waxy back surface, they are not intended to be ironed on.
