About Us

 

 

The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) is one of the nation's largest and most prominent values-based youth development organizations. The BSA provides a program for young people that builds character, trains them in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, and develops personal fitness.

For nearly a century, the BSA has helped build the future leaders of this country by combining educational activities and lifelong values with fun. The BSA believes — and, through nearly a century of experience, knows — that helping youth is a key to building a more conscientious, responsible, and productive society.

 


 

 

Cub Scout Pack 233 was formed in 1970.  Pack 233 is part of the Rockland District of the Hudson Valley Council of the Boy Scouts of AmericaWe are proudly chartered by the Nanuet Family Resource Center.

The majority of our Scouts attend the Nanuet School District, however we actively welcome any boy or girl who wishes to participate in Scouting to join our Pack!

Children in K through 5th grades are eligible to join Cub Scouts.

Some highlights of our Scouting program are our annual:

  • Holiday Food and Toy Drive
  • Rocket Launch
  • Pinewood Derby
  • Raingutter Regatta 
  • Family Campfire/Campouts
  • Keep Rockland Beautiful: Great American Cleanup
  • Special overnight and day trips
  • Carnival Night
  • Blue and Gold Awards dinner

Pack 233 holds pack meetings once per month. They are usually held at George Miller Elementary School.  The Pack meets for fun, education and recognition of acheivements that our Scouts have earned.

The Pack is organized into Dens, which are smaller groups of children who are in the same grade.  Most Dens meet once or twice per month. Dens usually meet at a Nanuet school or at a "Go See It" activity or destination within the community.

  • Note, registered Scouts can also participate in District and Council activities such as Summer Day Camp, family weekend camping, and special seasonal/holiday events.

All of our adult leaders are volunteers.

If you are interested in more information regarding Pack 233, and/or your child is interested in joining our Pack, please send an e-mail to:  CubMaster@nanuet233.mypack.us
