White Stag Sierra



Official White Stag Camp of Northern California – Founded in 1958

Campership guidelines

While we strive to keep our leadership camp costs low, we understand that some families still struggle to afford camp fees.

White Stag is for all

We believe our White Stag leadership development camp should be available to all regardless of income. We have received financial support from alumni for a limited number of camperships available to help families with limited means.

If paying for White Stag leadership camp is a financial hardship for your family, we urge you to apply for a campership. The campership can cover up to 80% of camp fees.
