Welcome to Camp Geiger, your premier summer camp experience.
you are new to Camp Geiger, we thank you for visiting our site, and if you attended our camp in prior years we welcome you back to one of the best summer camps in the Midwest. At any time you have questions, please feel free to contact us at 816-233-1351.
Our comprehensive 2020 Camp Geiger Leader Guide is your “handbook” for everything that relates to your week at Camp Geiger. Every piece of essential program information is contained in the Guide. It is designed in such a way to be easily readable on screen, or if you prefer, to download and print as a hard copy. Many hours went into preparing this comprehensive guide, organized in a logical, easy to read format. We noted the suggestions you made last year after the first publication of the Leader Guide and incorporated them into this year's work.
Every form you may need is contained in the 2020 Camp Geiger Leader Forms publication. Forms are available as a bound publication, or, if you prefer, as individual files. New this year: most forms are prepared as interactive PDF files, meaning you can fill them out directly on the screen, and then print your finished form.
Camp Geiger is preparing its summer program for 2020 with diligence and an extraordinary emphasis on health and safety. COVID-19 has necessitated many changes and adaptation to our program. We have eliminated the first two sessions of camp to allow for additional disease mitigation by delaying the start of camp two weeks. (An additional session has been added to the end of the camping season). For the Tribe of Mic-O-Say, there will be no Tribal Feast this year.
In 2020, unlike any previous year, we need to be able to more severely screen those coming in to camp. There will be special screening procedures in place when your Scouts and Leaders arrive at camp. You will receive that information in another information bulletin.
In order to maximize Scout and Leader safety, this year, there will be a no visitor policy at camp so that the people present in camp are limited to those who have been screened as medically safe to be present. This means that there will also be no visitor attendance at the Wednesday night campfire and no public attendance at Thursday night tapping ceremony. Should circumstances warrant a relaxation of this policy, you will be notified.
We recognize that even the most severe efforts at mitigation will not eliminate the possibility of the Coronavirus being present at Camp Geiger. We anticipate that COVID-19 will likely be present in as diverse a population as Scouts coming in from various locations, and therefore the following policies are in effect.
If you have additional questions regarding these policies for 2020, please contact Alan Franks, Scout Executive, at our Council office at 816-233-1351.
If you have a specific medical question, you may contact the Camp Geiger Supervising Physician, Tim Murphy at firstname.lastname@example.org
