White Stag Sierra is an all-volunteer, federal 501(c)3 non-profit organization. We were initially led by the White Stag Steering Committee, organized in 1961. In 1981, we legally organized ourselves as the White Stag Association.

All Volunteer

White Stag Sierra was founded in 1958. It has been entirely supported by dedicated parent volunteers since then. They spend about one full weekend a month meeting with and training our youth staff. They in turn work together to plan for, prepare, and conduct the summer camp. By the time summer camp arrives, the adults goal is to sit back and watch the youth excel. They occasionally help out when needed, but the camp is youth led. During a given year, the 45 to 50 adult and youth staff collectively give about 250,000 hours to the program.

Who we are

White Stag Sierra is composed of enthusiastic youth and adults who have been touched by the program spirit. It has made a difference in our lives and those around us. So we keep coming back. We always welcome new volunteers. What are you waiting for?
