For Venturers, BSA-issued pants/shorts, socks and belt are highly encouraged. Venturers who choose not to wear BSA issued pants/shorts, sock and belt must conform to BSA Venturing uniforming requirements and the following OCC NYLT guidelines:
- Gray backpacking style pants/shorts (the bottom of shorts cannot be more than 3” above the knees)
- Light gray socks
- Any belt appropriate for a Scouting environment
- ** The pants do not have to be purchased from BSA although they are available, but must be a similar type.
