Boy 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 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 neck wear.

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 32 strongly suggests a Boy Scout "class A" shirt with bolo tie for all meetings.  Due to the fact that we meet in the house of the Lord, caps are not allowed to be worn for meetings.

Our "class B" uniform consists of a Troop 32 T-shirt.  Also available is a Troop 32 ball cap that can be worn for any Scouting activities outside our meeting place.

These uniforms are a significant cost for many scouting families. Some possible ways to reduce costs are:
  • Have your scout earn the money for his uniform or part of it.(He may take better care of it, too)
  • Check with local used clothing stores, such as the ARC-Aid store.
  • Buy used Boy Scout items on
