Uniform

Hilversum International Scouts

Uniform

You can get the uniforms and badges at the Scoutshop in Baarn. But what do you need to buy:

Uniform, Necker, Promise badge, Beaver badge, ‘t Gooi badge and if possible your own country badge. Uniform can be worn as soon as he / she wants. Necker etc. please hand over to the leaders so she can put it on after the investiture. T-shirt will be given to them by the leaders.

At scouts we attend our meetings in uniform. In case of any question, just ask one of the leaders!
Note: Scouting Nederland is in the process of changing all the badges so some of the badges shown may now be different…. so if you don’t recognise it, just ask us!

  3. Regional badge – it tells you’re from ‘Regio ‘t Gooi’.(always the same, you’ll get this when you get invested as a scout).
