Actually, if you’re a new scout (or leader) you may need a shirt first, right? Right! You can get your son’s scout shirt at the Scout Shop [map] near the Dane County Airport (along with the numbers 1-5-5, a neckerchief slide, or a hat — which is optional). This combo of your shirt, neckerchief, and neckerchief slide (with or without hat) is known as the formal uniform, or “Class A Uniform”. If you buy the complete Class A uniform the Scout Store will give you a $10 OFF coupon on the spot!
The “Class B” uniform is a Pack 155 t-shirt, which we sell directly to you from the Pack. Class B t-shirts can be worn to informal events or when the event is one where the boys’ Class A may get dirty or damaged. You can request a Class B shirt by clicking here.
As scouts grow older, get bigger, or move on to Boy Scouts they may be willing to part with their old shirt. If interested in sharing a shirt or acquiring a shirt, let your den leader know and they can put the word out to other Pack leaders. Please know, if your family is in a situation where you may need some financial assistance with things like this, please contact Cubmaster Tony (or another trusted leader) and they can arrange for help. Any conversations along these lines are strictly confidential — we never want costs to get in the way of your son participating in scouting.
Whether you’re new to Scouting or a grizzled veteran that just earned a new rank, sometimes you just aren’t sure where some of those patches you’ve earned go on your uniform. Here’s a quick guide to help you out.
