welcome to camp geronimo!

Arizona's Premier Scout Camp

Join us at Camp Geronimo: 200 acres of forest, meadows, and adventure nestled in the shadows of the magnificent Mogollon Rim.

Camp Geronimo

Camp Geronimo’s main program is a classic Scout Camp experience based on the BSA merit badge system. Campers choose from over 40 merit badges to build their own schedule. They also get to experience an exciting and dynamic afternoon open program 

Brownsea Island

Brownsea Island Adventure (BSI) is designed for first-year campers who have just joined a troop or crossed over from Cub Scouts. The program focuses on requirements from the Tenderfoot, Second Class, and First Class ranks. This is a transitional program to help Scouts understand the patrol method, learn basic Scout skills, and experience the best of what Summer Camp has to offer.

Fish Camp

Fish Camp is a hands-on, immersive adventure offered by Trout Unlimited and the Grand Canyon Council. Scouts will earn and learn both Fishing and Fly-Fishing Merit badges as they become proficient in technical skills like casting and fly tying.

Mogollon Mech

Discover the STEM in Scouting by joining us for Camp Geronimo’s newest program designed for older youth. Where else can you earn your engineering merit badge while participating in great activities like mountain biking, rock climbing, stand up paddleboarding, and archery? Scouts will also have the opportunity to earn their aviation merit badge while exploring Arizona Rim Country via drone and RC plane.

Spade Ranch Adventure

Conquer your fears and experience the adventure of a lifetime in this exciting program designed for older youth and adults. Features climbing, canyoneering, caving, horseback riding, canoeing, mountain biking programs, and more!

Geronimo DIY

Geronimo DIY is a vocational-tech program where Scouts learn valuable life skills through fun and engaging hands-on activities led by our staff and camp rangers. Scouts will have the opportunity to earn several merit badges (such as Welding, Plumbing, Home Repair, and more!) as they work to improve camp one project at a time.
