The Boy Scouts of America® always WAS, IS and FOREVER WILL BE a Uniformed Body. There are many reasons for this policy. We will continue to expect that every Scout wear his full uniform at meetings and functions as designated. Keep in mind that when you wear the uniform you represent not only yourself but all Scouts that came before you and all Scouts that will come after you. Please make sure shirts are tucked, neckerchiefs are worn properly and that uniforms are kept neat and tidy. It is also important to make sure to update rank advancement Patches on a timely basis and make sure all patches and pins are properly sewn and displayed. For detailed instruction please refer to the Uniform and Insignia Code on-line.

**Short sleeve shirts are recommended because the boys can wear them year-round. All Scout uniforms should have the appropriate current rank achievements, activity segments and other specific designations. See your Cub Scout’s handbook for correct placement. No patches should be sewn or placed on the back of uniform shirts. Instead, temporary patch holders may be worn on the right pocket flap or a special patch vest or jacket may be worn.

Each Pack 817 scout has been provided a Class B Dri-Fit Shirt. We will let parents and scouts know when to wear their Class A uniform or Class B shirt. With their Class B Shirt they can wear jeans or shorts.
