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. As of 2016, we are celebrating 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.

2016 Mid-Iowa Council Fireside Chat:  View Video

The purpose of the Scout Executive's Fireside Chat has always been an exchange of information - and it still is.  Please take a few minutes to watch the 2016 Virtual Fireside Chat video.  When finished watching, please reply to with your comments and suggestions on how Mid-Iowa Council can help you deliver a stronger program to your Scouts.  As always, your ideas and comments are included in the program planning process for the coming year that begins very soon.
