Our club has been toying with the idea of changing the club colors/logo on the field uniform for the past couple years. Right now our shirt is this bright yellow color, which was originally chosen way-back-when so that the director could easily spot the members of our group. Our logo is an open bible with a sword behind it, and the pages read "put on the armor of God". Just wanted to see what some of the other clubs have for their club shirt/logo :mrgreen: .

Bright colors are good, because you can easily spot your pathfinders, which is extremely helpful at the bigger camporees. In a club I was with previously, we purchased 5 different colors of shirts (not all at the same time, but staggered over a few years), and then when we went to Oshkosh we had a different color for each day. The different colors didn't matter so much, but the multiple shirts was nice so we didn't have to wear the same one all week...

When our club first formed we were organizing a hike. One of the staff let us know that the hike was going to take place on the first day of deer season, and that we had best wear something bright. That's how we decided to go with red (no one was thrilled with blaze orange). One of the kids suggested that we'd look like we were all on fire, and that's how we got our name - Flames. So this is a case where uniform color determined club name.

But I do think bright colors are a good idea - for safety.

Our old club shirt was navy blue. All that it had on it was a small club emblem on the front. Our new shirt is brown and has the club emblem blown up on the back as well as having a small emblem on the front.

Staff tend to like BRIGHT colors. Kids tend to like "cool" colors -- those that look similar style/color-wise to other clothes they wear. I like to follow the Pathfinder's lead on shirt colors personally.....After all, Pathfinder clubs are FOR the kids. We'll learn to see/recognize our club members in a crowd no matter what color their shirt is!

And fortunately, the styles now tend to include bright colors, so the kids will like most bright-colored shirts. Whatever you do, don't get burgundy tho...

Does anyone remember when NEON colored T-shirts were very popular...? NEON Green, NEON Yellow, NEON Orange, etc. That was interesting, especially at Camporees and PF Fairs!''

Haha, yeah... unless you're talking about during a different round of fashions :wink: . They were pretty bright!

Good good, keep the feedback coming! :) In the early days of our club, the shirts were sky blue, but that particular color became harder to find so that was one of the contributing factors that led to the change to yellow. Also, my director and his original staff in the beginning were going to have black red and white as the colors in the shirts, but they were told that they were like "gang colors" or something, so that turned them off of the idea. I've never hated the yellow shirts, even when I was a pathfinder kid in our club myself, but still another color would be nice. We were even thinking of having one color for the kids and one for staff, has anyone done something like that?

I haven't done something like that with Pathfinders, but at the Science Camp that I volunteer at each summer they had blue shirts with yellow ink for the staff and the exact opposite for the campers (yellow shirts with blue ink). I thought it was really neat :D

In our club...original colors of the shirts were this fuschia pink! That was even before I was a Pathfinder! (early 90's) Hard telling how far back that goes! Anyways, in 2004 (FOF camporee) finally we voted to bring in a new color - and purple was the next one (not by our vote, but at least it was a new color!). In 2005, we had new leadership and you guessed it...another new color! This time the kids voted - a wonderful ocean aqua blue! And just last year we added a texas/rust orange to the line-up. We are now contemplating getting another color - looks like grass green might be the winner! Our logo/design hasn't changed though - we've still got the white & yellow sunburst and the text "Son Seekers" with the back having the state of Florida with a star over our city (Panama city) and the club name "Panama City Pathfinders" on the back. I believe the Pathfinder logo is on the back too.

The club I am part of has done that. I mentioned that we had navy colored t-shirts. The staff had tan polo shirts or light blue button down shirts. We just found that it was easier to order the same type of shirt for everyone.

Hey everyone, and thanks for the imput! Made a digitized drawing of possible shirts in various colors with our club logo on it to present to the club members, then I'm going to see what the kids would want it to be. So far the possible colors are as follows: Ocean blue, Navy blue, Burgundy/rust-type red, golden yellow, gray, white, black, and forest green. I might have 2 colors like stated before, maybe red or black for the staff and then another color for the kids shirts. I'll also see if i can get some pics up on one of those photo-hosting site to show everyone.

My club has a white shirt. But, it has Grey streaks in it. I don't know exactly how to explain it. But, it definitely looks and stays clean better than a plain white shirt.

We are looking on getting another club T-shirt. We have had our current design for over 10 years.

White and grey is called Heather Grey normally.

I have been in clubs with Yellow, black, red, blue, and light blue... possibly more hard to remember.

The most important thing is that you all like what you choose, after that remember it is a uniform so you need something the same for everyone or one for kids and one for staff.

My last Pathfinder club had a strikingly red shirt with the Hawk logo on the front and the back. You could probably spot one of us a mile away on a ridgetop! I'm not so sure what color my recent pathfinder club is using at the moment though... :oops: :lol:

Well, three years ago they used burgundy, the year after we got lime-green, the year after that royal blue, and this year purple! Purple rocks :D
