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.

Pack Meeting - Pinewood Derby is Coming Your Way!

Make time to join your Pack via Zoom for an online crash course in PWD science.  We'll leave time at the end of the meeting for Scouts to show off concept / design drawings too.

Welcome Home Mr. Scull!

Mr. Scull passed his physical rehab test and was able to head home on Friday! Thank you to all the Pack families that have supported the Scull family during this time. Mr. Scull is in great spirits - can't wait to see him back in action with the AOL Den.
