Boy Scouts of America Southwest Florida Council Manatee District PACK 46


Why Do We Wear Uniforms?

The Boy Scouts of America has always been a uniformed body. There are many reasons for this. One reason stands out above all the rest. We wear the uniform because it is a means of identifying ourselves openly with the principles to which we are committed-character development, citizenship training, and physical and mental fitness.

The fact that youth and adult members of Scouting wear a uniform doesn't mean that we're all alike. We come from different ethnic and racial backgrounds. We have our own religious beliefs and political views. We are each individuals with our own family traditions and loyalties. So the uniform is not intended to hide our individuality. But it is a way we give each other strength and support. It is a bond that ties us together in spite of our differences. It is a way of making visible our commitment to a belief in God, loyalty to country, and to helping other people.

The Scouting movement is built on positive values. As we wear the uniform, we are openly identifying ourselves with those values where everyone can see us. We stand together, not alone, in encouraging others to live by those same principles. Boys and adults alike should take pride in belonging to such a movement and wear the uniform as it is intended.

It is mandatory that all scouts and leaders wear a proper class A uniform to all meetings and events unless otherwise specified.

Our pack has designed our very own one clas B uniform shirt. 

 What is a Class B Uniform? A Class B Uniform is essentially a Pack designed and approved t-shirt.  Class A Uniforms are not always appropriate for all activities.  Hiking, working, playing and outings are sometimes very active events.  Class B Uniforms are lighter, easier to clean and cheaper.  More importantly, they say exactly who we are...Pack 46. 

We have several in stock and can get additional orders as needed.  Let me know if you are interested. 


Please note:  Class B uniforms are still a uniform.  They should be worn with pride and respect.  This should go without saying BUT...Please DO NOT ALTER your Class B.  Converting or cutting your shirt into a tank top, midrif, halter top or "v" neck IS NOT ALLOWED. If you have alredy done so then I kindly ask you to not wear it to scout functions.
