Note: This is still frequently asked on my site. I’m not sure you can even get the yellow shirt at the Scout shop anymore, but since there are still so many out there, people see leaders wearing them.
Lorraine sent in this question:
What type of shirt do female den leaders wear? (yellow or tan)I want to get a shirt to wear so my Webelo Scouts understand and take pride in the uniform. (lead by example) I never had a shirt before, we are Webelo 1.
Thanks for the question Lorraine. Female Cub Scout leaders may wear either the yellow shirt or the tan shirt. However, almost all of the den leaders I know wear the tan shirt.
Female Boy Scout leaders only wear the tan shirts. The yellow shirt is for Cub Scout leaders. So if you purchase a tan shirt you can also continue to wear it when your son moves to a Scout unit and you become a Scout leader. 🙂
For that reason, I’d recommend you get the tan shirt.
And I commend you for wanting to be a good example in uniforming for your den. We can’t really expect the youth to wear the uniform if adults aren’t wearing it.
