White Stag Sierra

Official White Stag Camp of Northern California – Founded in 1958

Youth leadership development in northern California

Hiking in the High Sierras!

White Stag Sierra is one of the best deals you’ll find for summer fun and learning. Come to White Stag Sierra and you’ll have fun transporting your entire team across an “infected” swamp without touching the ground. Or help every member get through a massive, poisonous spider web without getting trapped.

Camp in the High Sierras, swim in Lake Sterling, hike through chasms, climb mountains, eat in the outdoors. Have fun and make new friends.

Sign up for only $320 before February 28 and save almost $200 when compared to similar week-long camps and $1000 or more over national for-profit leadership camps. We throw in the beautiful high Sierra scenery for free! Apply today.

Leadership camp for youth 11-17

White Stag Sierra is a fun-filled week of games, leadership skills-building, high-adventure teamwork, campfires, camping, hiking, and more. Make new friends and learn by doing in the outdoors of the California High Sierra!

With our 50-plus year history, we’ve learned a lot, but we’re still small enough to give each individual the attention they need to have a fun summer camp experience.

Our leadership development summer camp program is for boys and girls and young men and women who have completed the 5th grade through 17 years old. Our program is for youth and led by youth.

Low fees

White Stag Sierra is a non-profit and we are entirely run by volunteers. Our fees are extremely low—compare our cost to any other organization’s fee and you’ll be impressed. Your camp fee includes food for the entire week, camp expenses, and even a couple of shirts! Apply today!.

Register early and save

When you attend summer camp you’re called a candidate, because you must prove your readiness and ability to accept the challenge to Follow the White Stag.

Our next summer camp is set for July 9-15, 2017 at Camp Cole in the Tahoe National Forest. We can only accept 100 candidate participants in 2017. Registration is open now. Want to learn more about leadership? Looking for fun and personal challenges? To sign up, apply for camp.

Expand your horizons

White Stag leadership camp challenges you to overcome your limitations, to expand your boundaries, to become a better person. It’s not for everyone. Learn leadership skills

We help you develop 11 essential leadership skills that you can use to be more effective in your school, at home, and in your community. During summer camp, you get multiple opportunities to learn and practice these leadership skills in small and large group settings. You will also develop plans for applying these skills at home and in your community. We have been helping youth like you learn about leadership since 1958.

Three levels to meet your needs

White Stag leadership development camp offers three programs to meet your needs. If you’re a Boy Scout, you can attend White Stag Sierra before or after NYLT. Choose a level based on your age, Scout rank, experience, physical ability, and grade level.
