The Webelos Uniform

Cub Scout uniforms are a way for Scouts to show their pack pride and display awards and ranks they earn.  Pack 151 has specific uniform requirements based upon our program. Parents/Guardians must purchase the required uniform and attach the emblems, badges and patches. 

The required Class A uniform costs roughly $60. We have a limited number of free uniforms (youth and adult) available from our Uniform Exchange for those who are not in the financial position to pay for a new uniform. 

Pack 151's Scouts are encouraged to wear their Class A uniforms to school on Pack Meeting days.

Pack 151's required Class A Webelos uniform includes:
  • An official blue Cub Scout Shirt (long or short sleeve) or an official tan Boy Scout shirt (long or short sleeve).  This shirt will last to fifth grade and beyond - so size it appropriately.
  • Webelos neckerchief
  • Webelos slide
  • Northern Star Council shoulder emblem
  • Pack numeral patches (151)
  • Den numeral patch (choose your Den's number)
  • World Crest emblem
  • An official blue web Cub Scouts belt (to attach belt loops he'll earn). Although Scout Shop staff may tell you this is optional, Pack 151 requires the belt after 1st grade.
Optional:
  • official pants or shorts
  • Webelos cap

Class B uniform:
Class B uniforms are special t-shirts that Pack 151 orders with a custom design. Class B t-shirts do not replace a regular Class A uniform (there's no place to display a boy's hard earned rank patches) but they do come in handy for certain occasions.

Pack or dens leaders may ask their scouts to wear a Class B uniform for camp outs or during meetings when leaders have a messy craft prepared. They're great for times when we want the boys to look like Scouts, but are afraid that they'll loose or damage their uniforms with rough play and adventure.
 

Contact pack leaders for more info on obtaining a Class B t-shirt.


The Uniform Code:
Your son should/will be encouraged to wear his uniform appropriately.  The shirt should always be tucked in and orderly. He should understand the importance of representing the entire Boy Scout Organization while in uniform.  


Sew vs stick?
It's up to you.  
  • Some parents like the ease of attaching patches with adhesives like Badge Magic.  Problem is, that it doesn't always stick wash after wash, risking the loss of a patch.  
  • Some parents sew patches their Scout's patches, which may be more difficult, but it will likely last a long time.  
  • Some parents have found that dropping off the uniform at a tailoring shop like Sew What in downtown White Bear Lake is another alternative.
Patch placement
Use the images on this page or the official Cub Scout Inspection Sheet as a guide.

Patches You don't need to Buy
Any badge or patch that your boy earns will be awarded (at no cost) during the Monthly Pack Meetings.  You will need to attach them to the uniform, but they are provided.
