The Lion Uniform
- Cub Scout Shirt (button down)
The shirt will last through Third Grade – so size it appropriately.
- Pants or Shorts
- Pack 170 T-Shirt
- New Hat
- New Neckerchief (paid for by pack)
- Slide (paid for by pack)
The Uniform Code:
Your son or daughter should/will be encouraged to wear the uniform appropriately. The shirt should always be tucked in and orderly. Scouts should understand the importance of representing all of Scouting while in uniform.
Time to Sew?
Most of the achievements/awards Lions will earn this year will come in the form of belt loops that will slide easily onto his/her Cub Scout belt. Once your Scout earns the Lion Badge, we will go over placement where to sew it on the uniform.
Patches You May Want to Buy (once you decide to invest in the button down Scout Shirt)
- Council Patch*
- Pack Numbers** (see Below)
- Den Number (Optional)
Patches You Don’t Need to Buy
Any badge or patch that your scout 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
To get an idea of pricing, or to order items online, visit http://www.scoutstuff.org
. This is the official online scout shop. They should have the same prices as our local scout shop.
Before most pack meetings we normally make a trip to the Capitol Area Scout Shop. You might contact the Advancement Chair if you need a patch or two – we might be able to save you a trip and pick them up for you at our cost. You are also welcome to order any needed items online or however you like.
** The Pack does occasionally special order the Red “170” Patch (to the left) so you don’t have to sew three number patches separately. Check with the leaders listed above for availability.
