Scouts Uniform and Badge Placement

What do Scouts wear?

The Scout uniform consists of a green sweatshirt with your badges sewn on and a coloured scarf or ‘necker’ to represent your local group. There are lots of other optional accessories you can wear such as hats, hoodies, navy blue trousers or shorts, if you’d like to.

Where can I buy a Scout Uniform?

Uniform can be purchased from The Scout Associations’ Scout Store.

If you’re stuck, ask adult volunteers to tell you more about what to buy. If, cost is an issue they will also be more than happy to help.
