Why should I support the West Tennessee Scout Shop?

 

  1. Your dollars stay in West Tennessee to help fund programs for local youth.
  2. Our Scout Shops are the largest volume, Council-operated shops in the United States.
  3. We serve volunteers from numerous states in our stores, and through telephone and fax orders.
  4. Many items we carry are unique and are designed and produced locally, supporting other local businesses.
  5. We receive new products on a regular basis, so there are often new products to purchase.
  6. We aggressively mark down older items and offer specials frequently that are not available through the BSA National website.
  7. We special order any BSA National items that we may not carry with no additional charges to the customer.

 

Why Cub Scout Uniforms and Handbooks Are Important?

 

THE UNIFORM

 

There is a lot of chatter about "why" we place so much emphasis on uniforms.  Uniforms serve many purposes.

 

* Equality. The uniform represents a democratic ideal of equality. Children from various cultures and different economic levels wear the same uniform and cooperate as equals.

Identification. The uniform identifies a boy or girl as a member of the Cub Scouts. Badges on the uniform tell other members that they belong to their den, pack, and council. The uniform itself identifies a good citizen to the entire community.

Achievement. The uniform displays badges and other awards so the accomplishments of each Cub Scout can be immediately recognized.

Commitment. Wearing a uniform is a constant reminder to each Cub Scout of their commitment to the ideals and purposes of Cub Scouting: duty to God, loyalty to country, and helpfulness to others.

 

Just as you would not send a child out to play any sport in an old pair of shorts and tee shirts, you should not send your child into Scouting without the proper uniform.  A uniform identifies youth as part of a group and would give them a sense of belonging.

 

 

The Handbook

 

The Handbook is possibly the most important item that a Cub Scout carries.  Do not let anyone tell you the handbook is not important!

 

* The handbook for Lions, Tigers, Wolves, Bears, and Webelos Scouts is a road map to where they are going, and exactly how to earn the rank.  It gives you the requirements for the rank, and how to accomplish the requirements.

* The handbook provides a vital “tear-out” pamphlet for youth protection.  This is critical and is a great tool for each parent to review with their child how to stay safe. 

* The handbook is fun to look at and read.  It encourages every child to read and enjoy reading.

 

If you cannot afford a uniform or book, specific assistance is available to help.  It may be able to assist you with part of the cost of Scouting.  Ask your District Executive for more details.
