Uniforms

Pack 502 is a “waist-up” Pack for the standard, field uniforms (Class A). That means we require a uniform shirt, neckerchief and slide for formal functions. Hats are optional outdoors, and the uniform belt shorts or pants are not required. Our Pack does require your Scout to wear the field uniform to each Pack and Den meeting, unless the informal activity uniform (Class B) has been approved for the event. The activity uniform is any other scouting-related shirt, generally a t-shirt from the Scout Shop, a Pack shirt, or Den shirt.

Please note: While youth tend to grow quickly during their time in Cub Scouts, many uniform items can be reused as needed. Patches can be moved to new shirts as they rank up, and belt buckles can be updated without having to replace an entire belt.

To purchase your Scout’s uniform and insignia, please visit the Musselman Scout Shop at 2226 NW Military Hwy (210.341.8611 ext 500). The Scout Shop will sew on patches for a nominal fee, currently $3 per patch.
