What is the Scout uniform?
The Boy Scouts of America has always been a uniformed body. Its uniforms help to create a sense of belonging. They symbolize character development, citizenship training, and personal fitness. Wearing a uniform gives youth and adult members a sense of identification and commitment.
Where do I get the patches?
Unirform patches can ordered on line.
Are Cub Scouts the same as Boy Scouts?
Cub Scouting is a program of the Boy Scouts of America—so in that sense, Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts are both members of the same organization. However, they are entirely different programs: Cub Scouting is a family-oriented program designed specifically to address the needs of younger boys and girls.
What supplies and equipment are needed to particpate in Cub Scouting?
At minimum, each child in Cub Scouting will need a uniform and a handbook. Each year, s/he will need a new handbook, cap, and neckerchief; but other uniform parts remain the same for at least the first three years. When a boy enters a Webelos den, s/he may need to obtain a new uniform if the parents in the den opt for the khaki-and-olive uniform.
Additional supplies and equipment may be needed for certain activities such as camping trips or field days. What equipment is needed, as well as whether it will be provided by the unit, will vary from pack to pack. Den and pack leaders should provide parents with information about any supplies that will be required at the beginning of each program year.
