Welcome to Camp Geiger, your premier summer camp experience.
If 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.

On February 1, 2020 participant registration will open. A minimum down payment of $100 will be required for each scout and each adult registering. The entire balance is due to the council on May 1st. The incentive to register participants earlier is to begin signing scouts up for merit badge classes when it opens on May 1st. A scout cannot sign up for merit badge classes until they are paid in full.
Popcorn discount will apply to in-council scouts only.
Camperships apply to in-council scouts only. Application deadline is April 1, 2020. Click here for the campership application.

This form is to be submitted at camp prior to your arrival.Two part-time leaders may share a full-time slot and will not be charged the per diem fee. Register the part time leader arriving first as an Adult Full Week. The second part-time leader should sign in at Headquarters when checking in to replace the first to arrive. All other part-time leaders should register as Adult Part Time.
