Where do all the patches go?
Need a quick reference to what the typical Cub Scout uniform looks like? How about where all of the patches go?

This page is meant to show pictures and give guidelines to help those doing the sewing. Also, if you have someone else sewing for you, send them here for a quick "look see"

Thanks folks!

Your Cub Scout might not have all of the patches these two guys do, but you can see the general placement of the Den number, patches, so on.

Also, download these handy guides for the official uniform guidelines.

Parts of the Uniform

The parts that make up your Cub Scout uniform are these:

  • The Cub Scout shirt, with long or short sleeves
  • Cub Scout shorts or trousers
  • A cap that shows your rank in Cub Scouting—orange for Tiger Cub, yellow for Wolf Cub Scout, blue for Bear Cub Scout, and plaid for Webelos Scout
  • A neckerchief that matches the color of your cap
  • A blue belt with a brass buckle
  • Official blue socks with orange or gold tops (orange tops for Tiger Cubs; gold or yellow tops for all other ranks)

Because Webelos Scouts are close to becoming Boy Scouts, some Webelos dens choose to wear the tan and olive uniform similar to the one that Boy Scouts wear (tan shirt, olive shorts/slacks, olive socks).

Badges, Patches, Pins, and Medals

Besides showing that you are a member of the Cub Scouts, your uniform gives you a place to display your personal achievements and those of your den and pack. Badges of rank, award emblems, special recognitions, and the medals you win at Cub Scout activities are all sewn or pinned onto your uniform.

Wearing the Uniform

Unless your den leader says otherwise, you should wear your Cub Scout uniform to all Scouting activities—not only den and pack meetings, but every activity in which you take part with other Cub Scouts.
