You're correct that female Cub Scout leaders have the option of wearing
either blue/gold or khaki/OD. This is a recent change to the uniforming
policy - before that, all female leaders in a Pack were expected to wear
blue and gold except for Webelos Den Leaders and Assistants.
I can defend your trainers somwehat by saying that the Basic Training
Course syllabus wasn't immediately updated to reflect this change, so
it's possible they missed it when it was published in Scouting Magazine.
However, I would hope that every trainer keeps watch for new
developements, and works them into the course when they happen.
