A brief guide to uniforming

This is a guide for the basic pieces of insignia worn by all ranks on the official Cub Scout uniform. Check for proper placement on the Patch placement guide.

The CSP is worn by all Scouts directly below the shoulder seam on the left sleeve. This emblem is unique to each local BSA council.

This emblem is a gold embroidered bar worn by boys and adult leaders of packs that have been chartered 50 years or longer. It is worn directly below the council patch, above and touching the pack numeral. (Pack 33 is one of the oldest continuously-chartered Cub Scout Packs in the country. We have been active in the National Capital area Council since January 13th, 1939, which entitles our members to wear the "75" bar)
