Uniforms

Cub Scout uniforms are worn at most Pack and Den functions! The Pack also has Pack t-shirts that can be worn for more informal Pack events (hikes, fishing, camping, etc). The Uniform Inspection Guidelines document attached also shows the placement of the various patches and awards. Anything that doesn't go on the uniform can be sewn onto a red Cub Scout vest (available at the Scout Store, or make your own from simple red felt).

Here are the Pack’s uniform requirements:
