Do Scout leaders have to wear uniform?

Scout leaders generally do not have to wear a uniform. However, many scout organizations do have an optional uniform for leaders to wear. The uniform often consists of a shirt, pants or skirt, and a hat or cap. The uniform may vary depending on the specific organization and country in which it is based.

For example, in the Boy Scouts of America, adult leaders are not required to wear a uniform. However, they may choose to wear the uniform if they wish, and there are specific guidelines for how it should be worn.

In the Scout Association (here in the UK), adult leaders are also not required to wear a uniform. However, they may choose to wear the uniform if they wish, and there are specific guidelines for how it should be worn.
