Uniform Guide

There are two Cub Scout uniforms - the "Field uniform" and the "Activity uniform". In general, the button-down Field uniform is worn to pack meetings, unit outings, and any community activities done with members of the pack. The Pack 553 T-shirt is the Activity uniform and is generally worn when at den meetings, playing sports, camping, and other physical activities.


Scouts will be notified which uniform is appropriate for each event.


The images below show examples of the Field uniform for Tigers, Wolves, Bears, and Webelos and the proper locations for patches. Tigers, Wolves, and Bears use the same shirt year to year, but the hat and neckerchief change color each year. Webelos wear the tan shirt for 2 years.
