About TROOP 178


Boy Scouts of America


Scouting is adventure, family, fun, character, leadership and so much more. 

In Scouting, boys and girls start with their best right now selves  and grow into their very best future selves. It’s fun, hands-on learning  and achievement that puts kids in the middle of the action and prepares  them for today – and for life.

 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.
