  1. When Scout units choose a type of Youth Uniform/Clothing for an event, it must take account of safety considerations arising from weather conditions, the nature of the event, and the site at which the event is to be held, etc.
  2. Scout units should notify the participating members before the event of the required Uniform/Clothing.
  3. Youth Members should follow instructions and wear proper Uniform/Clothing and also correctly wear all compliant Clothing Items, Insignia, Badges, Decorations and Awards.
  4. Scout unit Leaders should ensure that when Youth Members are participating in activities in cold weather (including sectional unit meetings and uniform inspections), they are wearing sufficient warm clothing.

Grasshopper Scout Clothing

So that Grasshopper Scouts will look forward to the time when they can officially wear Scout uniform, the Grasshopper Scout Clothing only requires a scarf and a simple, neat costume for Ring meetings.
