Cub Scout Uniforms

The Scout uniform helps build pride, loyalty, and self-respect. Wearing the uniform to all den and pack meetings and activities also encourages a neat appearance, a sense of belonging, and good behavior.

Scouts are required to have the following official uniform parts, often referred to as the 'Class A' uniform:

  • Shirt: The official blue uniform shirt is available with long or short sleeves and has button-flap pockets. (Webelos & Arrow of Light scouts wear the official tan uniform shirt)

Scout Closet

Pack 311 maintains a “closet” of previously used uniforms. Anyone who needs help obtaining a uniform or uniform accessory is welcome to browse the “closet” to meet their needs. Please see the Cubmaster or your Den Leader for access to the closet. If your scout has outgrown their uniform or extra uniform accessories please consider donating them to the Scout Closet for other scouts to use!
