Bear





Welcome to the Bear Den



Bears are in Third Grade or 8-9 years old

Den Leaders:  Christopher Warren and Eric James


Note: 
Wolf and Bear uniforms are the same except for the hat and the Neckerchief.


Required:

  • Shirt (Long or Short Sleeve)
  • Belt
  • Neckerchief
  • Slide
The shirt will last through third grade - so size it appropriately.

Optional:
  • Pants or Shorts
  • Hat
Each Year:
  • New Hat
  • New Neckerchief
  • Same Slide for Wolf and Bear Dens.
The Uniform Code:

Your son should/will be encouraged to wear his uniform appropriately.  The shirt should always be tucked in and orderly. He should understand the importance of representing the entire Boy Scout Organization while in uniform.   


Time to Sew?

The image to the right will help with the placement of emblems and patches.


Patches You'll need to Buy
  • World Crest Emblem (above left pocket)
  • Council Patch
  • Den Number 
To get an idea of pricing, or to order items online, visit http://www.scoutstuff.org.  This is the official online scout shop.  They should have the same prices as our local scout shop. 


Items you DO NOT need to Buy
  • Flag patch (comes with the shirt)
  • Pack Numbers **
Upon joining Pack 1910, all Scouts are given a neckerchief, slide, and rank-specific Scout handbook.  Therefore you will NOT need to purchase any of those.  You will also not need to buy any Rank Advancement Badge or Patch that your boy earns as they will be awarded (at no cost) during the Monthly Pack Meetings.  You will need to sew them on, but they are provided.


Where to Purchase Items

Before most pack meetings we normally make a trip to the Scout Shop.  You might contact the Advancement Chair if you need a patch or two.  We might be able to save you a trip and pick them up for you at our cost.  You are also welcome to order any needed items online or at the local Scout Shop.  


** The Pack special orders the Red "Pack Number" Patch so you don't have to sew four number patches separately.  Check with leaders for availability.
