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 Boy Scouts of America 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.  We have most of our Pack meetings at George Miller Elementary School in Nanuet, NY.  We are part of the Rockland District of the Hudson Valley Council of the Boy Scouts of America.
  • We are proudly chartered by the Nanuet Family Resource Center.
  • The majority of our Scouts attend Nanuet Public Schools, however we actively welcome any boy who wishes to particpate in Scouting to join our Pack.  Boys in the 1st through 5th grades are eligible to join Cub Scouting.
  • Among the annual highlights of our Scouting program are a Rocket Launch, Holiday food and toy drives, the Pinewood Derby, a Family Campfire/Campout, Keep Rockland Beautiful: Great American Cleanupspecial overnight and day trips, a summer picnic, and our annual Blue and Gold Awards dinner
  • We have a Pack meeting once a month where the entire Pack meets together for fun, education, and recognition of acheivements that our Scouts have earned.
  • The Pack is organized into Dens, which are smaller groups of boys 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 our community.
  • Registered Scouts can also participate in District and Council activities such as Summer Day Camp, family camping, and special seasonal events.
  • All of our adult leaders are volunteers!
