Thanks for stopping by the online home of Troop 42 of Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Our goal is to help young men learn leadership skills while participating in inviting activities and community projects. We encourage our scouts to enjoy camping, canoeing, skiing and other rewarding adventures in the great outdoors. Highlights of our Troop include a yearly trip to our local merit badge university, a week at Howard H. Cherry Scout Reservation and a four year High Adventure schedule. We also could not be as active without our bus and customized trailer.

Troop 42 is a very strong and active organization for the youth of our community. We have an extremely dedicated and active parent group. Our Scoutmaster, Dave Ptacek and our many committed Assistant Scoutmasters, work hard to train all our young men to achieve beyond their potential.

We are a unit of the Red Cedar District of the Hawkeye Area Council located in wonderful Cedar Rapids, Iowa. As some have put it, not Idaho where they grow potatoes or Ohio where they have Buckeyes - Iowa where they grow more corn than any other state. Last, but certainly not least, we are excited to be associated with our charter organizations, St Pius X and St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Churches.

Please enjoy your visit and make sure you look at all of the pages. We have a lot here to look at. Return often because our webmaster is always hard at work updating our site.

If you are one of the many visiting troops or scoutmasters, we also hope you enjoy your visit. Many have asked so here it is...take a look at how we do that.
