CLASS B UNIFORMS

Our class “B” or "activities" uniform is an alternate uniform shirt, a t-shirt with the pack’s logo, worn to certain outdoor scouting events and activities. It is used mostly for outdoor activities and events during the spring and summer months. The class “B” uniform should only be worn to scouting events and activities when instructed by your Den Leader or Cubmaster.
