Scout uniforms are an important part of the Boy Scouts of America program and one of the methods of scouting. Each scout gets to be part of a group demonstrated by their uniform and each group has a personal sense of identity. The scout uniform is also a display case for a scout's individual accomplishments and recognition. We wear the uniform to associate ourselves with the principles to which we are committed - character development, citizenship training, and physical and mental fitness. The uniform is not intended to hide our individuality, but it is a way we give each other strength and support.
The Scouting movement is built on positive values. As we wear the uniform in cub scouts and Scouts BSA, we stand together and encourage each other to live by those principles. Scouts and adults alike should take pride in belonging to this program and wear the uniform correctly.
Troop 49 Uniform Dress Code: Class A with proper insignia, Troop 49 or other BSA Neckerchief, appropriate shorts or pants (no gym shorts or sweats), BSA hats, belt, and socks are optional. Having all scouts consistently uniformed for meetings and outings makes for a much better adventure. If a scout needs help with obtaining a proper uniform please contact your Scoutmaster.
