Scouts should be present in as complete an uniform as they own. We don't expect you to go out to buy things specifically for this inspection. Note: You may use the inspection sheets to make sure that patches are placed correctly.
We'll inspect the Scouts, then the Scouts (selected by the Cubmaster) will get to inspect the adults. It should be fun.
Tuck those shirts in, please.
- Equality. The uniform represents a democratic ideal of equality. Boys from various cultures and different economic levels wear the same uniform and cooperate as equals.
- Identification. The uniform identifies a boy as a member of the Cub Scouts. Badges 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 immediately recognized.
- Commitment. Wearing a uniform is a constant reminder to each Cub Scout of his commitment to the ideals and purposes of Cub Scouting: duty to God, loyalty to country, and helpfulness to others.
