Our Camp Sites

Camp Geronimo is a Summer camp in the pine forest north of Payson under the Mogollon Rim which has been in operation for 65 years. The Arizona mountains are well regarded for their bountiful lakes, and streams, for freshwater and fly fishing. Camp Geronimo is in the center of it all, which makes our time-tested programs such a great opportunity for youth looking for a new advanced summer camping adventure!

The R-C Scout Ranch is a gorgeous 78-acre youth camp property resting prominently at the base of Christopher Mountain.

All Camp sites are certified through the National Camp Accreditation Program (NCAP). NCAP is a rigorous review of camps and properties for continuous improvement, and correction or elimination of substandard practices. Only camps that successfully complete all five aspects of the NCAP are BSA accredited camps.
