Effective Oct. 1, 2013, the official stance on the Boy Scouts of America’s uniform policy is that shirts are to be worn tucked in, regardless of whether the wearer is a Cub Scout, Boy Scout, Varsity Scout, Venturer, or adult Scouter. All Sea Scout uniforms are designed to be tucked in except youth dress whites and youth dress blues.
In the past, guidelines have simply stated the uniform wearer should be neat in appearance. Neatness includes tucking in the shirt. This clarification will appear in related resources, such as the uniform inspection sheets, as they are revised and printed.
This is as published on Scout-Wire, the newsletter for Professionals in the Boy Scouts of America: http://scout-wire.org/2013/10/18/clarification-of-uniform-policy-requires-uniform-shirts-to-be-tucked-in/
The Church of Latter Day Saints is perhaps one of the largest supporters of the Boy Scouts of America today. Last Tuesday they celebrated in great style! If you missed the live broadcast from Salt Lake City, you can check out a recorded version online.
It’s pretty amazing – the opening ceremonies are awesome! Check it out!
“WA: a Spirit of Unity” is the theme for the Jamboree. The Kanji Character “?” (WA) embraces many meanings such as unity, harmony, cooperation, friendship and peace. WA also represents Japan and its culture.
If you thought the Summit in 2013 was something amazing, the BSA is just starting to form its 2015 World Jamboree contingent! Check out the amazing video above, a printable color flyer to show your friends, and put your name on the mailing list so you’re the first to know what comes next!
The World Jamboree is held every 4 years, in the years between our BSA National Jamborees. The last one was held in Sweden, and the next one will be here in the US at the Summit. This is the only opportunity to be part of a program like this, in Japan. But that isn’t all that makes it special…
Scouts participating in the Jamboree will be placed in homes throughout the region to help increase understanding of Japanese way of life and culture, and to help cultivate mutual understanding. Visitors will also get to visit Hiroshima, and a program is in place to help create pen pals with Japanese Scouts to participants all over the world. If you can’t attend the Jamboree in person, there will be a special program for youth around the world to be able to join in from home.
PS: Want to know what the food looks like? In August 2013 they held a pre-Jamboree on site. Here’s the daily cookbook so you can see what they had to eat!
