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 joining Pack 231.

Pinewood Derby Signups

 Volunteers Needed 

The Pinewood Derby is one of the major events in our Pack calendar and is also our biggest fundraiser of the year.  In addition to the Pinewood Derby Sponsorships we will have a concession table with pizza, snacks, drinks, and assorted baked goods to purchase. The Pack will handle the pizza, but we are asking for Pack families to donate the other items. 

Another way to help the Pack is to volunteer your time. There are opportunities to help setup, cleanup, and staff the concession table on race day.  Please review the available slots below and click on the button to sign up.
