Uniforms

Wearing uniforms has been a key part of the Scouting movement from the beginning. Decades of experience show uniforms to have many benefits, including:
  • Equality. The uniform represents a democratic ideal of equality. Boys from various cultures and different economic levels wear the same uniform and cooperate as equals.
  • Identification. The uniform identifies a boy as a member of the Cub Scouts. Badges on the uniform tell other members that he belongs to their den, pack, and council. The uniform itself identifies a good citizen to the entire community.
  • Achievement. The uniform displays badges and other awards so the accomplishments of each Cub Scout can be immediately recognized.
  • Commitment Wearing a uniform is a constant reminder to each Cub Scout of his commitment to the ideals and purposes of Cub Scouting: duty to God, loyalty to country, and helpfulness to others.
For these reasons, among others, all parents should emphasize to their Scouts the importance of wearing the correct and complete uniform on all suitable occasions.

Pack 722 Uniform Guidelines

In our Pack, all Cub Scouts wear the blue uniform shirt with the appropriate neckerchief and hat: orange for Tigers, yellow for Wolf, and blue for Bears. Webelos can wear either the blue Cub Scout shirt or the khaki Boy Scout shirt, with the Webelos hat and neckerchief.

We do not require the pants or belt for any of our Scouts; they are completely optional.

The blue and khaki shirts should have the following patches:
  • Pack numerals, "722"
  • Boston Minuteman Council shoulder patch
  • World Scouting patch (purple)
  • Any previously earned badge of rank.
  • Den number. Numbers stay the same from year to year. If you're new to the Pack, ask your den leader what your Den Number is.
For details on where the insignia is to be placed, please see this PDF document.

The Scout Shop is located at 400 West Cummings Park, Washington Street, in Woburn, across from Staples. Call them at (781) 937-4282 for hours of operation.

Please contact your den leader or Cubmaster if you have any questions.
