Welcome to the home of Mill Valley Pack 33. First chartered in 1956, Pack 33 is sponsored by the Tamalpais Community Services District. We are an inclusive pack welcoming boys and girls that believes scouting teaches skills for life: outdoor skills, environmental stewardship, community service, and character. Our scouts attend Tam Valley, Strawberry Point, Marin Horizon and other southern Marin elementary schools. Come discover the joy of scouting with us!
We will be camping as a Pack the weekend of February 10th in Fairfax.
