What to Buy

We recommend that you purchase a uniform for your son as soon as possible after he is accepted into Troop 61. Each Scout is expected to have a uniform consisting of the following:

  • Long sleeve or short sleeve Scout shirt
  • Pants (long pants or shorts with Scout socks)
  • Belt
  • Shoes and socks
  • Hat (baseball style)
  • Neckerchief (provided at crossover)
  • Neckerchief slide
  • Scout membership Card

The scout is encouraged to earn some of the money for his uniform.

Which Uniform to Wear

Uniforms are defined as follows for Troop 61:

  • Class A: Full Uniform (all item listed above)
  • Class B: Scout pants (or shorts with Scout socks), with a Scout T-shirt, camp T-shirt, or Troop 61 T-shirt.
  • Class C: “Civilian” clothes - No Scout Uniform

The Class A uniform is to be worn to all Court of Honors, Troop meetings, formal activities such as parades, and any camp-out where another Scout unit will be camping with us (Camporees, etc.)

The Class B uniform is to be worn primarily during summer months (July and August) when it may become to warm to wear the Class A uniform or when activities may soil or damage the Class A Shirt and patches.

The Class C uniform is worn on outings where we will not be interfacing with Scouts from other troops or with the public.

Where to Buy

Boy Scout uniforms and equipment maybe purchased at the local Scout distributor, the Maynard Outdoor Store at 24 Nason St., Maynard. If they do not have what you need in stock, they will order it, which may take up to six (6) weeks.

Also to visit the Scout-operated retail store in Southborough, MA. This is the New England Regional Scout Retail Shop and most items are in stock at the store.
