Welcome to Mid-Iowa Council, Boy Scouts of America!
Mid-Iowa Council is headquartered in Des Moines, Iowa, in the Fred Maytag II Scout Center. In 2016 we celebrated 100 years of Boy Scouting in central and southern Iowa. Our mission is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.
