Wearing a uniform gives youth and adult members a sense of identification and commitment to the goals of character development, citizenship training, and personal fitness. The awards displayed on the uniform mark significant milestones in every Scout and leader’s progress in achieving these goals and successfully practicing Scouting’s ideals.
Pack 20 Uniform Policy
Pack 20 is a “belt up” pack. This means we only wear the hat, shirt, neckerchief and slide, and belt portions of the cub scout uniform. Any pants or shorts are fine.
The Cub Scout uniform should be worn to all Cub Scout activities including, but not limited to, Den Meetings and Pack Meetings. Cub Pack 20 camping trips are the rare exception where the Cub Scout uniform should NOT be worn. In our pack, we require an official BSA Cub Scout shirt with patches placed correctly along with an official Cub Scout neckerchief and a neckerchief slide.
The pack will provide the den number patch, scout neckerchief and rank badges (i.e., Tiger, Bobcat, Wolf, Bear, Webelos). Parents must provide the shirt, patches, and neckerchief slide. You will need the following patches:
- Atlanta Area Council shoulder patch
- Pack Numerals 20
- World Scouting Emblem– This emblem is worn by all registered youth members and adult leaders to symbolize membership in the World Scouting movement.
- World Scouting Emblem Ring– The 1910 World Crest ring celebrates the 100+ year history of the Boy Scouts of America. It is designed to be worn around the World Crest Scout emblem.
Scouts are required to wear their shirts buttoned up and tucked in to pants or shorts that are free of rips, tears, frayed edges, etc. If hats are worn, they will be worn front and center.
