Scout Uniform

The Scouts Canada uniform represents a history of involvement, of association with a set of principals, of helping others, and of fun, adventure, activity, and learning by doing.  Your uniform identifies you as a member of the world’s largest youth organization.

Rooted in more than 100 years of tradition, the iconic Scouting uniform has undergone an exciting new makeover! As part of a comprehensive national Action Plan for Canadian Scouting, Scouts Canada announced a new stylish and dynamic clothing line that reflects the organization spirit and energy. The contemporary uniforms were revealed in March 2011 during a celebratory event held in Toronto, Ontario – and were adopted for use in September 2011.

For both Formal Events and Program Activities Formal Events and Program Activities Formal Events and Program Activities Formal Events and Program Activities, the complete uniform consists of a green button-up shirt, neckerchief, and neckerchief slide.  Formal events include things such as investiture, major award ceremonies, civic meetings, and Remembrance Day ceremonies.

For any events which are not deemed “formal”, which includes most meetings and camps, there is an option to wear a “casual” uniform.  This consists of the green “Tech” t-shirt, optional fleece vest or hoodie, neckerchief, and neckerchief slide.

Unless it is a formal event—you will be notified in advance—the choice of uniform (button-up shirt or t-shirt) is up to the individual Scout.  It is important that you get outfitted with a uniform as soon as possible—ideally by investiture night at the latest.  If you are new to 6th Dundas Scouting, a $15.00 deposit is required for use of the necker – this is returned when the necker is returned in usable well kept condition at the end of your involvement with 6th Dundas Scouting.  You may also purchase your neckerchief outright for the same amount, you will need to indicate when you pay which option you are going with.  Neckerchief slides (woggles) are provided on investiture by the Troop.  Shoes worn in the Church Hall must have NON-MARKING SOLES.
