Welcome to Cub Scout Pack 533, Cypress, Texas


Our Cub Scout Pack's Unit Number 533Pack 533 is open to all 1st through 5th grade boys in the Cypress, Houston, Texas area. We are in the Big Cypress District of the Sam Houston Area Council (SHAC) of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) program.

Our Cub Scouts mainly attend Keith Elementary School of the Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District in the Fairfield subdivision in Cypress, Texas. We are chartered by the Keith Elementary School PTO. Our charter organization is our sponsor and provides us with meeting space at Keith's cafeteria. Any boy from any neighborhood or school can join Pack 533. You do not have to be a student at Keith to join Pack 533.

Our Pack has about 40 to 60 boys organized by Dens. Each Den usually has 6 to 15 boys of the same grade level. Dens are a great way to make and stay in touch with friends. Boys may join at any grade, whether or not they have been scouts before.

  • 1st graders are in Tiger Dens
  • 2nd graders are in Wolf Dens
  • 3rd graders are in Bear Dens
  • 4th graders are in Webelos Patrol
  • 5th graders are in Arrow of Light

Join Pack 533  Our Pack Leadership is made up of parent volunteers who have sons in our program. There are no paid personnel running our Pack; therefore, we need parents like yourself to help run this great group of boys!

  • Pack 533 is NOT Exclusive - We welcome boys and families of all races, ethnic groups, and religious backgrounds.
  • Pack 533 is NOT Day Care - Your family will need to attend all events and be active in our Pack. You need to watch your own children.
  • Our activities are family and parent/son oriented but many activities also welcome sisters and other siblings
  • Everyone is expected to "Help Pack 533 Go!"

What Pack 533's Website is all About


Purpose:
Pack 533 built this website to help current, new and future families in our Pack thrive in their Cub Scouting experience with us!

Design and Layout:
Our Pack 533 website is split into two sites. One is the PUBLIC SITE webpages and the other is the PRIVATE SITE webpages. To get access to the PRIVATE SITE you will need to be a current member of Pack 533 and get a login ID and password from the Pack's Webmaster. Just click on the "Contact our Pack" link at the top center of this site to contact the Pack Webmaster.

Website Philosophy:
We purposely created this website to contain static (non-changing) general Cub Scouting information. This reduces the amount of time our volunteer Pack Webmaster has to maintain this website. Only Cub Scouting information that is unique or necessary to "new parents" in Cub Scout Pack 533 is typed out on this website. All other general scouting information is linked to sites like the official BSA's (Boy Scouts of America) websites. Also, our Pack 533’s Photo Gallery on the PRIVATE SITE side will have Pack pictures updates added by our Pack Photographer. Furthermore, any personal family pictures should only be on the PRIVATE SITE side, which requires a login and is not for the general public to view. Current and new Pack 533 Webmasters should keep these philosophies in mind when maintaining this website in the future.

Information in this Website:
This PUBLIC SITE webpages has general information about Pack 533, Cub Scouting and how to join Pack 533. The PRIVATE SITE webpages has Pack Leadership and Chair information on how to run our Pack. The PRIVATE SITE webpages also contain our ongoing Pack 533's Photo Gallery. The PRIVATE SITE webpages does not contain any of our Leaders' or family contact information; see the use of ScoutTrack's website below.

Information NOT in this Website:
Current Pack 533’s families need to log into Pack 533-Keith Elementary or Scoutbook to get specific and up-to-date Pack information. New families wanting to join Pack 533 will need to sign up at Registration Night. All private family information on Scoutbook should NOT be duplicated here on this general Pack 533's ScoutLander website; neither on the PUBLIC SITE webpages nor the PRIVATE SITE webpages. Pack 533 uses Scoutbook exclusively for the below specific information, records and actions: 

www.Scoutbook.com
  • Listing of all our Pack's events and activities in the Scoutbook Calendar
  • Membership and Leader contact information in Scoutbook's Pack Roster
  • Leaders can create automated mass emails to all Den and Pack families
  • Parents and Den Leaders can fill out Scout's achievements, belt loops and pins in Scoutbook's database
  • All other Pack management needs for the Scout's advancements to next Cub Scout Rank
