2015 Staff

Year after year Camp Geiger assembles one of the best Boy Scout Camp Staffs in the nation. With over half the Staff at 18 years of age or older and Eagle Scouts themselves, the incredible retention rate of the Camp Geiger Staff offers the ability to provide one of the best camp programs in the nation.

To be a member of the Camp Geiger Staffs is an honor and a responsibility that young men from all around the country do not take lightly. As young adult role models, our staff members are provided the opportunity to learn lifetime leadership skills for themselves while delivering the Scout program to younger scouts from across the Midwest and beyond.

More Information
For most people Camp Geiger is known as their home away from home. For John Clawson and his family, Camp Geiger is their home! In 1989, John started his career as a district executive in the Pony Express Council. Later, after serving as a DE and camp staff member for several years, John became the Camp Geiger Ranger in February of 1995.

Being the Ranger of over 450 acres is not an easy task. John is lucky to have many volunteers who help him maintain the beautiful hills and valleys that sit above the Missouri River. John’s wife, Dee Dee Clawson, has been the camp cook for many years and in the offseason she has repaired tents. John also gets a lot of help from his three children: Meghan, Tyler (Eagle Scout), and Ciara.
