Camp Geiger 

Camp Geiger was founded in 1935. The original grounds were accessed on the Missouri River side of the camp. A generation of Scouts enjoyed the rugged and almost primeval, rocky, lowland camp. In the 1950's, it became clear that, due to the ever increasing popularity of Camp Geiger, more land was needed. In 1952, a major adjoining tract of high river bluff land was acquired. This land, plus the acreage of what is affectionately referred to as "old camp" as well as an additional thirty acres on the northeast boundary purchased in 1990, comprise what we know today as Camp Geiger. Today, therefore, Camp Geiger offers a wide variety of landscapes to energetic campers.

How to get to Camp Geiger

Camp Geiger is located northwest of St. Joseph, Missouri, near the K highway exit from Interstate 229. Those coming from the North on I-229 will find the ramp is directly across from the camp entrance. Those coming from the South on I-229 will take the K Highway exit and turn left, traveling across the bridge. The camp entrance is located about 100 yards north of the bridge, on the left side of the road.
