The Wood Badge uniform is the uniform of your registered position and
unit. You will be provided with one (1) course cap, the course
neckerchief and the appropriate insignia patches. Participants will
have the opportunity to purchase course shirts at the course.
More information will follow. Again, it may be possible to
borrow uniform parts from other scouters instead of purchasing
them. Link to BSA Uniform Information
Q: Do I wear my Scout uniform?
A: During the course, participants wear their official Scouting field
uniforms (BSA button down/collared Scout leader shirt, Scout pants or
shorts, Scout belt, and Scout socks), signifying their current Scouting
program. The activity uniforms for Wood Badge courses consist of BSA
uniform pants (short or long) and a BSA Scout T-shirt or knit shirt.
Field uniforms will be required for wear each morning of the course
until lunch, and again in the evenings beginning with dinner. At other
times, activity uniforms may be worn. Jackets of any type are
acceptable. Patches on red Scout jackets must comply with the BSA’s
Insignia Guide, No. 33066. Please review and follow BSA’s Scout leader
uniform requirements: BSA 34048 pdf
Q: In my home unit official BSA pants are not a required piece of the
uniform. Am I required to wear official BSA pants or shorts during my
participation at the Wood Badge course?
