Troop 44 has been chartered to St. Paul Presbyterian Church for 43 years and we meet weekly on Thursdays, 7:00 - 8:30 PM at the church. We currently have between 40 and 50 registered Scouts and about the same number of adults participating as leaders or committee members.

We will be tent camping in the youth area and fishing will be a large part of the agenda. Scouts who need cooking requirements for rank will have an opportunity to cook for patrols, (how many depends on how many Scouts sign up for this event).

Ahquabi Outing, Oct 4 - 6

Posted on Sep 10 2019 - 8:43am

Lake Ahquabi, just 6 miles south of Indianola, is the next location for a weekend campout on October 4—6.
Ahquabi is the Sauk and Fox native word meaning "resting place", and it is a fitting name for this scenic 770 acre park. Lake Ahquabi State Park was dedicated in 1936 with many of its structures built by the men of Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) during the Great Depression. Troop 44 will be camping at the youth campground, Y-115.
