where to get uniforms

Scout uniforms and accessories can be purchased in many places, however you should always check with the troop first when you need to make a uniform related purchase.


The troop has an assortment of official Scout shirts and pants. Boys can borrow and use the pants and shirts until they grow out of them, at which time they should be returned. The troop provides patrol patches, rank badges, and badges of office when they are needed. In addition, the troop has an assortment of patches and shoulder loops available for sale.


Another place to get official Scout uniforms is the York Adams Area Council Scout Shop. They sell uniform shirts, pants, belts, patches, and pretty much anything related to Scouting. The shop is located in York, PA; directions can be found using the link above.


Lastly, you can purchase uniforms online at Scoutstuff.org. Official Scouting merchandise can be found here, but patches specifically related to our council may not be available.
