All members should wear their uniform to meetings and events, unless instructed otherwise.

The uniform consists of :

  • Light blue scouting shirt (available from Scouting Direct )
  • Scout scarf (this is awarded when the scout is invested)
  • Dark trousers or skirt (often, school uniform trousers or skirt can be used).  Note that, due to the physical nature of many of our activities, skirts can be problematic and we recommend trousers as a better option.
  • Dark closed-toe shoes (not sandals, crocs, or jandals)

On certain events, you may optionally wear an “Adventure Plus” t-shirt instead of scout shirt.

Badges are awarded for achievements as well as to identify group, section and zone.  The image to the right details where these should be placed on your shirt (click the image for larger). See the section pages for examples of each sections badge placements.

It is important to wear appropriate footwear.  If a scout is wearing inappropriate or unsafe shoes, they may not be allowed to take part in certain activities for safety reasons.

You can buy uniforms from Scouting Direct; they may also be obtained second-hand in some cases.  If you are interested in buying or selling second-hand uniforms, please contact uniforms@cmas.org.nz
