Cub Scout Uniform Patch Placment

Temporary Patches
  • Purpose: A temporary patch is a good way to show what your Scout recently participated in or something that he's especially proud of.
  • Earning it: Patches earned at the Pinewood Derby, Polar Cubs, Cub Scout camp, etc. are examples of temporary patches.
  • Wearing it: These "fun" patches are worn by Cub Scouts, ONE at a time centered on the RIGHT pocket of the official Cub Scout or Boy Scout Class A field uniform; or suspended from the right pocket button of the field uniform. Some temporary patches have special loops which makes switching patches easy. 
  • Collecting them: Cub Scouts love to collect temporary patches.  The collection grows as they participate more and more. They can be collected in a box, on a bulletin board, a red vest, red blanket, bag or in a million other ways.
  • See below for a few temporary patch examples:
