Why do cub scouts wear uniforms?
- Equality – The uniform represents a democratic ideal of equality. Boys and girls from various cultures and different economic levels wear the same uniform and cooperate as equals.
- Identification – the uniform identifies a boy or girl as a member of the Cub Scouts. Badges or belt loops on the uniform tell other members that he belongs to their den, pack, and council. The uniform itself identifies a good citizen to the entire community.
- Achievement – The uniform displays badges and other awards so the accomplishments of each Cub Scout can be ímmediately recognized.
- Commitment – Wearing a uniform is a constant reminder to each Cub Scout of his commitment to the ideals and purposes of Cub Scouting.
Cub scouts wear their uniform to every meeting and adventure.
Cub Scouting is proven to develop
positive character traits in children.
