Lion Uniform

The Lion Uniform

Required for Boys and Girls:

    • The official Lion t-shirt.

    • Official navy-blue Lion cap.

    • Optional Lion neckerchief slide.

The shirt will last through third Grade - so size it appropriately.


    • Official uniform pants, shorts, or skorts, and Cub Scout socks are optional. The use of these items for Lions is decided by the den leader and families in the den. There is no uniform inspection sheet for Lions

    • Official navy-blue web belt with metal buckle.

Each Year:

    • New Hat

    • New Neckerchief

    • New Slide for Wolf Den.

The Uniform Code:

Your scout should/will be encouraged to wear his or her uniform appropriately. The shirt should always be tucked in and orderly. He should understand the importance of representing the entire Boy Scout Organization while in uniform.

Where to Purchase Items

Before most pack meetings we normally make a trip to the 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 may have Council Patches and other standard patches in stock. Check with the Cubmaster, Committee Chair, or Advancement Chair for availability.

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 referred 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.

    • DO NOT mix uniform parts with non-uniform clothing, such as wearing a uniform cap with other clothing or wearing a uniform shirt with blue jeans. The uniform should be treated as a unit—worn in its entirety, or not at all.

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