Why have a Cub Scout uniform?

When you see someone in a uniform, you know that person belongs to a specific group.
A police officer wears a uniform, and so does a doctor or a firefighter.
As a Cub Scout, you wear a uniform too!

Our uniform is important, and not just because it shows that we’re Scouts.
It represents that we’re equal, displays all of our individual achievements,
and reminds us of our commitment
to our duty to God, loyalty to country, and helpfulness to others.

Learn more about the uniform below and at this link.

What is the Cub Scout uniform?

The uniforms are different for each grade level a Cub Scout is in.
But they each have a distinctive shirt and the iconic neckerchief that’s held up by a slide.



If you are a Cub Scout in kindergartner, you wear a unique t-shirt with the Lion logo, a distinctive tan neckerchief and slide, plus a special Lion hat.

If you are in first, second, or third grade, you will wear a blue shirt, blue belt, and a neckerchief & slide in the correct color for your rank—orange for Tigers (first), yellow for Wolves (second), and blue for Bears (third). You can also wear a matching hat for your den.



Fourth and fifth grade Webelos Scouts can choose between the blue Cub Scout shirt or the tan Scouts BSA shirt that the older Scouts and leaders wear. All Webelos Scouts will wear the Webelos neckerchief, which is yellow, blue, and red plaid. A matching Webelos hat is optional.
