PACK 85 WELCOMES YOU!
NOVATO CUB SCOUTS
We are a wonderful group of K through 5th-grade young scouts, boys and girls, primarily students from Pleasant Valley, Olive, and Lu Sutton Elementary.
Located in Novato, California, just 30 minutes North of the Golden Gate Bridge. Pack 85 has been serving the Novato community since 1965. We are a pack comprised of 7 dens with an average of 30 scouts. We always welcome new scouts and their families to join us!

Yes! We still kept scouting during COVID-19!
You can't keep a good scout down! During lockdown in 2020 we moved to virtual activities, then to small socially distanced outdoor activities. Currently our dens and the entire pack are meeting in person. We follow all COVID-19 guidelines from Marin County Public Health.
Here are some of the great adventures we've done:
Organized home campouts and crafts at home
Regular virtual activities, community guests, and meetings
In-person activities following current COVID-19 regulations:
Hikes and tidepooling
Community service projects (litter cleanup, Scouting for Food)
Pinewood Derby race
Drive in movies
...And whatever else our leaders can come up with!

Scouting for Food Success!
In November 2021, Pack 85 collected bags of food donated by Novato residents, to benefit the SF-Marin Food bank. Across Marin County, Cub and Boy Scouts were responsible for collecting over 54,000 pounds of donated food, a record number!
Service Project for Marin Humane!
Pack 85's Tiger Den (First Graders) completed a service project for Marin Humane, where they made fleece blankets for kittens. When they went to Marin Humane to donate the blankets, they were treated to a private tour and met a service dog and handler. Our scouts even got a mention on the Marin Humane website!
