The Cub Scout uniform, or Class “A”, consists of the navy blue uniform shirt, neckerchief, slider and hat. The neckerchief, slider and hat matches your Scout’s current den. For example, if your child is in the Tiger (or first grade) den, they wear the tiger hat, orange tiger neckerchief and tiger logo slider. The Cub Scout uniform should also have the following patches sewn on it: American flag, Northern NJ Council patch, BSA world crest and numerical patches with Pack designation — “1199”.
Though not required, the Scout Handbook is recommended.
Lions (Kindergarten) will be given a special den t-shirt to wear.
Webelos and Arrow of Light dens (4th & 5th Grade) have the option to wear either the navy or tan uniform shirt.
Cub Scout uniforms can be purchased at the Northern NJ Scout Shop located in Oakland, NJ or at Ramsey Outdoors. Our Pack has started a uniform recycling program, so you may want to check if we have shirts, hats, neckerchiefs, etc available. Please reach out to your den leader for more information on our uniform recycling program.
Unless specified otherwise, the Class “A” uniform is to be worn at ALL Scouting events including den and Pack meetings. If your Scout has a recreation or travel game or practice before a Scout event, he may wear his uniform. Please be sure that proper footwear is worn. No cleats.
