Time to Sew?

If you need help determining where to place patches and insignia, look on the inside cover of your Scout's Bear Handbook or refer to the BSA Cub Scout Insignia Guide.

To get an idea of pricing, or to order items online, visit This is the official online scout shop. They should have the same prices as our local scout shop.

** The Pack may have Council Patches and other standard patches in stock. Check with the Cubmaster, Committee Chair, or Advancement Chair for availability.

Patches You Don't Need to Buy

Any Rank Advancement Badge or Patch that your Bear earns 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. You are also welcome to order any needed items online or however you like.
