Uniforms

Uniform Policy

Wearing uniforms has been a practice of the Scouting movement from the beginning. Uniforms have many benefits including:

  • Equality. The uniform represents a democratic ideal of equality. Children from various cultures and different economic levels wear the same uniform and cooperate as equals.

  • Identification. The uniform identifies a child as a member of the Cub Scouts. Badges on the uniform tell other members that he belongs to their den, pack, and council. The uniform itself identifies a good citizen to the entire community.

  • Achievement. The uniform displays badges and other awards so the accomplishments of each Cub Scout can be immediately recognized.

  • Commitment. Wearing a uniform is a constant reminder to each Cub Scout of their commitment to the ideals and purposes of Cub Scouting: duty to God, loyalty to country, and helpfulness to others.

​​

For these reasons, among others, all parents should emphasize to their Scouts the importance of wearing the correct and complete uniform on all suitable occasions.

Class A uniforms are considered the official BSA uniforms sold at the Abraham Lincoln Council Scout Store or online at www.scoutshop.org


Class B uniforms are t-shirts purchased through the pack.


Pack 31 understands that BSA uniforms are not inexpensive and as a result has tried to adopt a uniform policy that reduces the amount of Official BSA apparel and allows Scouts to spend some time in Scouting before making a big investment.
