Scout Uniform


The Scouting program in America has always included uniforms for its members and volunteers to identify members and show they are part of the Boy Scouts of America. Scouts and leaders should wear their uniforms to all patrol meetings, troop meetings, and scout outings.

The tan and green Boy Scout uniform is a well-known symbol of American scouting.  All scouts in the program wear the same uniform with the major differences being the badges each scout has earned and the troop specific neckerchief.

The official dress uniform is commonly referred to as the 'Class A' uniform. Most scout troops also have an activity uniform, referred to as 'Class B' which is often a t-shirt customized just for the troop. Activity uniforms are worn for work projects, sporting activities, and other events in which the dress uniform might get damaged.

Uniform Checklist


 

Troop 21 requires a Boy Scout "class A" shirt for all meetings and while traveling as a troop.  A Troop 21 embroidered neckerchief is available from the the Treasurer for $5. The official Boy Scout hat is optional.
