Cub Scout Uniforms

The Boy Scouts of America has always been a uniformed body. One reason stands out above all the rest. We wear the uniform because it is a means of identifying ourselves openly with the principles to which we are committed; character development, citizenship training, and physical and mental fitness.

The fact that youth and adult members of Scouting wear a uniform doesn't mean that we're all alike. The uniform is not intended to hide our individuality, rather it is a way we give each other strength and support. It is a bond that ties us together in spite of our differences. It is a way of making visible our commitment to a belief in God, loyalty to country, and to helping other people. The Scouting movement is built on positive values. As we wear the uniform, we are openly identifying ourselves with those values.

Pack 042 requires uniforms to be worn for all Den and Pack functions, unless otherwise specified. We will not present an advancement award to a boy who is not in uniform. Those who are unable to obtain or afford the Basic Scouting Uniform may contact Pack Leadership for confidential assistance with resources available for such situations.
