Camp Geiger Summer Camp 2015
If you are a Boy Scout or Scout Leader, we think you should consider Camp Geiger as the place for your summer camp experience this year. We know it will take little to convince Scout units in the Pony Express Council to come to Camp Geiger.
They have been doing so - willingly and enthusiastically - for over seventy years. They know that Geiger always meets or exceeds the expectations of their Scouts, leaders and parents. If you have already decided to come to Camp Geiger, we welcome you. You won't want to miss out on the fun, adventure and sense of independence and freedom that you will find in the rolling hills of Camp Geiger, situated on the Missouri River bluffs just north of Saint Joseph, Missouri.
One of the unique features of Geiger is flexibility. We provide over 50 program activities to provide Scouts many fun learning opportunities. This flexibility extends to the unit needs in providing the opportunity for their Scouts. Please check out the Leader's Information Guides for procedures to meet special needs such as check-in times and medical concerns.
Roger Denton has taken over for Tony Sasso as Camp Director with Sean Killin as ProgramDirector. Tony hasn't left camp, he is taken over the Shooting Sports program. Click on the picture to learn more from Roger and Sean.

Exciting news: The Boy Scout Activities Schedule for 2015 is now available. The program committee has worked hard to get this in the hands of leaders the earliest ever. Since it is out early some minor changes are possible.
New and exciting programs are being developed for the 2015 camping season. The state of the art shooting sports area is one of the programs at camp as well as our COPE course with a 65 foot tower. Please check this page frequently as new features will be added as they are ready. Important updates are also posted in the Important Information for Unit Leaders (click on it below).
Units have already turned in their reservation for 2015. Reservations can be made by contacting the council office.
And for more excitement construction of the first Storm Shelter started November 5th at Kickapoo. This will be a great addition when each of the 13 are built. Each campsite will have it's own, including shower and toilet facilities.
