Webelos Scouts may choose to wear either the blue Webelos uniform based on the Cub Scout uniform or the tan/olive uniform similar to the one Boy Scouts wear.

For the tan/olive uniform, boys wear the official Boy Scout olive trousers or shorts and official Boy Scout tan long- or short-sleeved shirt with blue shoulder loops. Official blue socks (with gold tops) are worn with the blue uniform, and official olive socks (with red tops) are worn with the tan/olive uniform.

With either uniform, all Webelos Scouts wear the Webelos neckerchief (plaid with the Webelos emblem), Webelos neckerchief slide (handmade slides are also acceptable), Webelos cap, and Webelos belt buckle.

Note that the Webelos belt buckle will fit either the blue or the olive belt, but the belt loop recognitions for the Cub Scout Academics and Sports program fit only on the blue web belt.

For Pack 298: Wearing the Uniform


In general, every Cub Scout should wear his uniform to all Cub Scouting activities, including den and pack meetings, unit outings, and any activities done with members of the den or pack. When playing sports, going to camp, or participating in other physical activities, Cub Scouts have the option of wearing Pack 298's T-Shirt (available from the Pack for $10 each). Pack leaders will provide advance notice of any occasion when the boys should wear anything other than the complete uniform.

Here are some tips for wearing the uniform:

  • Pack 298 is a "belt up" unit -- meaning that the official Cub Scout uniform pants are optional. Scouts may wear jeans or conservative shorts that coordinate attractively with the official shirt.
  • DO keep the uniform clean and in good repair. The official uniform is a sturdy, machine-washable garment that will last for years with proper care.
  • DO be sure to wear the complete uniform (noting that official uniform pants are optional in Pack 298). A Cub Scout wearing a uniform with parts missing (such as the neckerchief, etc.) is not in uniform.
  • DO NOT wear non-BSA badges, awards, or insignia on the Cub Scout uniform or make any alterations to the uniform or insignia.
  • DO NOT mix uniform parts with non-uniform clothing, such as wearing a non-uniform cap with the uniform. The uniform represents the Cub Scouting program and should be treated as a unit—worn in its entirety, or not at all.

Any time you are uncertain about uniform regulations, ask the den leader for guidance.

Class B Uniform for all Scouts and Leaders


The “Class B” uniform consists of the official Pack 298 T-shirt that will be available for sale during registration and at pack meetings, along with dark blue shorts or jeans.
