Join Us

Want to come check us out?

If it’s adventure you seek, you’ve found the right place!  We are always on the lookout for young men, ages 11-17 that are interested in the outdoors and having fun!  Feel free to join us at any of our regularly scheduled troop meetings.  We meet on Monday evenings from 7-8:30PM throughout the year.  Generally speaking, we meet at the Vittoria Lodge (7200 NW 2nd Ave, Ankeny).  It’s always a good idea to check our calendar before planning to stop by in the event our meeting location has moved or if it is cancelled due to severe weather or holidays.  The general rule of thumb is if we don’t have school, we don’t have a Troop meeting.  However, this does not apply during the summer!

Are you ready for some adventure?

So, you think you are up for the challenge?  Well come check us out on an outdoor activity!  Let us know what activity you would like to join us at and we’ll make sure we get all the paperwork to your parents to make sure you have a fun and safe outing.  Please make sure you coordinate this in advance as there are a few more preparations (food, lodging, transportation, etc) that we need to take when leaving town with the troop!

Parents- want to help out?

We value each and every person that is willing to give up one of their most precious things- their time.  Without a dedicated team of volunteer parents, the Scouting program would not exist.  Scoutmaster Weaverling says, “If you surround yourself with great people, great things will happen.”  We are blessed not only with an abundance of motivated young men, but we also have very involved parents.  This is the foundation of the strength at Troop 73.
