Uniforms are an important part of scouting and wearing one has many benefits. Wearing uniforms has been a method of the Scouting movement from the beginning. Decades of experience show uniforming to have many benefits, including these:

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

  • Identification – The uniform identifies a boy 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 his commitment to the ideals and purposes of Cub Scouting: duty to God, loyalty to country, and helpfulness to others.

Pack 29 wears the dress uniform, what we refer to as a Class A uniform, on all suitable occasions. In general, every Cub Scout should wear their uniform to all Cub Scouting activities, including den and pack meetings, unit outings, and any activities done with members of the den or pack. When playing sports, going to camp, or participating in other physical activities, we typically ask the Cub Scouts to wear an alternate uniform, what we refer to as a Class B uniform. Your den leader will provide advance notice of any occasion when the scouts should wear anything other than the class A uniform.
