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.

Join / Renew for 2023-2024

Thanks to all that made it to the first Pack Meeting of the 2023-2024 school year!

It was great seeing a lot of new and returning faces. We look forward to seeing everyone at our next Pack Meeting on 10/18.  

Returning Scouts: Now that we have kicked off the new year it is also time that we ask for returning scouts to pay this year's dues. Please follow the instructions on the Join Pack 231 webpage.  

New Scouts: For new families that are ready to join you have an extra step to register with Chester County Council. Please follow the instructions on the Join Pack 231 webpage.  

For all Scouting Families: Please take a few minutes and fill out the Family Talent Survey. This doesn't lock you into anything but it helps us know how you might like to help with den or pack activities.

Scouts can bring their Pinewood Derby cars from previous years to show off and be prepared to share stories about our other pack activities such as summer camp, weekend camping, and ice bowling.

Hike will be on an approximately 1 mile long paved trail. If you don't have an August Summertime Award event, this is the place to be on Sunday.

Sandy Hollow Heritage Park, 42 acres of preserved open space, much as it was in 1777, allows public access for passive recreation to a portion of the Brandywine Battlefield National Historic Landmark. Established in 2002, the park has a 1.1 mile asphalt path for pedestrians.

The park can be accessed from a parking area on South New Street, north of the intersection of South New Street and Birmingham Road.
