Scout Uniform

The Scout Uniform

When must the uniform be worn?

The Scout uniform should be worn to all Scout meetings (nights) except those which specify other dress. Those other nights are generally theme nights (eg: Pirate Night, International Night etc).  On theme nights, the scarf and woggle still needs to be worn.

Sout uniform must be worn to and from all external events.  Failure to wear uniform during transport can affect insurance applications, so please do the right thing.

Note: If your Scout is likely to be cold wearing their uniform, you might want to have them wear a long sleeved top underneath it.  We usually require the removal of jackets for flag parade.

The Uniform

A Scout Shirt is the only formal requirement of the Scout uniform. Your Scout will need this for their investment ceremony. 

All uniform pieces, clothing and accessories can be purchased online from the Scout Shop, and all orders include free delivery. Please allow 5-7 days for delivery.

Our group will supply all the badges and Scouts scarf when they are invested as a member.

Uniform Enforcement

Scouts isn't school. We'd love everyone to be in full uniform but we do understand that there are budgetary constraints and that those bone pants get dirty very quickly.  We're insistent upon correct safety equipment and a little "pushy" about shirts and scarves but nobody will be sent home or banned from an activity for not having the proper shirt/scarf.

Safety equipment (Shoes, Hat and Sunscreen) is a different thing altogether and failure to wear the proper safety equipment can result in cubs being unable to participate in certain activities.

Prohibited Clothing

There are some things which are prohibited in Scouts for safety reasons:

If Scouts do not have appropriate footwear, they will not be able to participate in activities.
