The Boy Scout & Cub Scout Uniform

"Wear It Right"

The National Council of the Boy Scouts of America has established the standard guidelines for uniform appearance and wear. These guidelines establish a common appearance for all members of the Scouting movement, and help to identify not only the level of the program which Scouts are involved, but also provide Scouts with the means of building pride and self-esteem in wearing their uniform and displaying their individual achievements and awards.

The Uniform Inspection sheet shows the proper wear of the Scout uniform as well as the correct position for placement of the various insignia for each level of the Scouting program. Not every component of the uniform is required, so please check with your individual unit and unit Leaders to confirm what components are required by your Pack.

The Scout Neckerchief is one of the most often misunderstood components of the Scout uniform. For that reason, the information below is provided to give a perspective of the historical wear and uses of the Scout Neckerchief.
