The Mid-America Council has a strong tradition as one of the Nation’s premier Scout Councils. Since 1910, the Boy Scouts of America has instilled timeless values of character, citizenship and leadership in each young man and woman who has entered the Scouting program. The Mid-America Council continues this tradition through educational based skills and activities. Currently, there are 20,814 Scouts and 7,017 volunteer leaders.

The Mid-America Council was formed from a merger of the Covered Wagon Council and the Southwest Iowa Council in 1965. The first recorded Scouting movement in the area was in 1918 as the Omaha Council. In 2000, our council merged with the Prairie Gold Council in the Sioux City, Iowa area. The Mid-America Council covers 58 counties in Nebraska, Iowa and South Dakota.
