Webelos Scout Uniform
Webelos Scouts may choose to wear either the blue Webelos uniform based
on the Cub Scout uniform or the tan/olive uniform similar to the one that
Boy Scouts wear.
For the tan/olive uniform, boys wear the official Boy Scout olive trousers
or shorts and official Boy Scout tan long- or short-sleeved shirt with blue
shoulder loops. Official blue socks (with gold tops) are worn with the blue
uniform, and official olive socks (with red tops) are worn with the tan/olive
With either uniform, all Webelos Scouts should wear the Webelos neckerchief (plaid
with the Webelos emblem), Webelos neckerchief slide (handmade slides are also
acceptable), Webelos cap, and Weblos belt buckle.
Note that the Webelos belt buckle will fit either the blue or olive belt,
but the belt loop recognitions for the Cub Scout Academics and Sports program
fit only on the blue web belt.
