Uniform & Awards

When you see someone in a uniform you know they belong to a specific group. A police officer wears a uniform and so does a doctor and a firefighter. As a Cub Scout, you will wear a uniform too. If you are in first, second, or third grade, you will wear a blue shirt, blue pants, and a neckerchief in the correct color, orange for Tigers, yellow for Wolves, and blue for Bears. Don't forget the Webelos. Some Webelos will wear the blue shirt and some will wear the khaki shirt, the same one the Boy Scouts wear. All Webelos will wear the Webelos neckerchief, which is yellow, blue, and red plaid. The blue and yellow is to remind them they are still in a pack, and the red is to remind them they will be moving to Boy Scouts soon.

There are other parts of the uniform: pants, belt, socks, and a hat. If you wear the blue shirt, you wear the blue pants and the hat for your den. If you wear the khaki shirt, you wear green pants but still wear the hat for your den (Webelos hat).
