Welcome !

Pack 231 is a thriving Cub Scout unit including families with elementary students in Chadds Ford, Hillendale, Pocopson and neighboring private schools. The Pack is chartered by the Pocopson PTO and run by parent volunteers. Cub Scouts is a family-focused program designed for boys and girls  in K-5th.

We hold meetings and plan activities throughout the school year. We emphasize fun while promoting the purposes and values of Cub Scouting. Click here for more information about Cub Scouting.
