Pack 1833 - Mountain View Elementary School

  Pack 1833 just celebrated 42 years in the Gainesville/Haymarket area!

Pack 1833
 serves Mountain View Elementary School in Haymarket, Virginia.   We are the original pack in the Gainesville/Haymarket area and welcome boys currently in 1st-5th grades who live in the communities that have Mountain View Elementary School as their base school. If your son goes to a private school in the area or even if they are home schooled, as long as you live in those communities, this is YOUR pack!  Current kindergartners can join June 1st at the end of their kindergarten year. Please look around our website and see what cub scouting is all about!!

In Cub Scouts your son will have lots of fun, learn new things and make new friends.  But Cub Scouts is much more than that it is fun – with a purpose. Everything he will do in Cub Scouts – ceremonies, earn awards, sports, games and crafts, will be done with a specific purpose in mind.  The reasons parents want their son to get into Cub Scouts probably aren’t the same as why he will want to join.  Take a look at the Cub Scout Promise, Law of the Pack and the 12 Core Values Cub Scouting strives to teach:


The Cub Scout Promise
I promise to do my best
To do my duty to God and my country,
To help other people, and
To obey the Law
of the Pack.

The Law of the Pack
The Cub Scout follows Akela.
The Cub Scout helps the pack go.
The pack helps the Cub Scout grow.
The Cub Scout gives goodwill.


12 Core Values






Health & Fitness



Positive Attitude





Family Camping

Our Spring Camp-out was a GREAT outing.  We had hot dogs and kielbasi, mac & cheese, an assortment of other sides and, for dessert, a dutch oven cherry cobbler.  Later we made a roaring campfire, had skits, "ghost" stories, sang songs and roasted marshmallows.   In the morning, we had hot coffee and hot chocolate, an assortment of pastries, held a short worship service, cleaned up our site and departed. 

2014 Pinewood Derby

Pack 1883 held its 2014 Pinewood Derby on January 11th

Here are just a few examples of the cars that 
Scouts built and raced 

2014 Stocking Stuffers Service Project

Congratulations to PACK 1883 Scouts!

In December 2014, Pack 1883 collected small toys, books, crayons, matchbox cars, playdoh, yoyo's, slinkies markers, craft kits (just to name to few) and wrapped candy.  We organized and distributed 160 gift bags and four dozen games/activities to children through the Haymarket Food Pantry.
