Time to Sew?
This document will help with the placement of emblems and patches. If you don't sew, you can pick up non-sew sticker backing from Galaxy Hobby which works quite well.

  • Council Patch
  • Pack Numbers 265
  • Flag comes with the shirt

Patches You don't need to Buy
Any Rank Advancement Badge or Patch that your boy earns will be awarded (at no cost) during the Monthly Pack Meetings. You will need to sew them on, but they are provided.

Where to Purchase Items
Galaxy Hobby in Plover has everything you need for your uniform. They also give 10% back to our Pack to help pay for project materials.

Wearing the Uniform
In general, every Cub Scout should wear his 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, a pack may opt to have the Cub Scouts wear an alternate uniform, such as an activity shirt. These are sometimes refered to as Class B Uniforms.

Pack leaders should provide advance notice of any occasion when the boys should wear anything other than the complete uniform.

Here are some tips for wearing the uniform:
  • DO keep the uniform clean and in good repair. The official uniform is a sturdy, machine-washable garment that will last for years with proper care.
  • DO be sure to wear the complete uniform. A Cub Scout wearing a uniform with parts missing is not in uniform.
  • DO NOT wear non-BSA badges, awards, or insignia on the Cub Scout uniform or make any alterations to the uniform or insignia.

Any time you are uncertain about uniform regulations, ask the den leader for guidance.
