The majority of this goes to pay the national organization fee, the local Council program fees and our insurance. The trips and activities are designed to generally be ‘pay as you go’.

The BSA/Troop 2 official “field uniform” (sometimes incorrectly identified as the “class A” uniform) consists of four items:
- BSA tan shirt, with the forest green shoulder loops, and all correct insignia. No unofficial patches.
The short sleeve shirt is recommended. When it is cold, they can wear a solid color sweatshirt underneath.
- BSA olive pants (or shorts, in the summer)
- BSA belt
- BSA socks
Buy a current Scout Handbook at the scout shop as well. Important!
The T2 official “activity uniform” (sometimes incorrectly identified as the “class B” uniform) consists of the ALL OF THE ABOVE except the forest green “T2” t-shirt instead of the tan shirt.
At this time the troop does not have an official hat or neckerchief. (These items are adopted by each individual troop. ) Until such time any Scouting cap may be worn, although please note no non-scout hats/caps should be worn, especially logo wear.
Scouts should wear appropriate footwear at all times, including the weekly troop meetings.
Open toed shoes (flop flops, sandals, etc.) are never appropriate except perhaps at a beach.
A uniform inspection sheet for Scouts showing correct patch placement and SKUs to order insignia, etc. is here.
For registered adult leaders it is here.
