White Stag Sierra offers three summer camp programs that are tailored to meet your needs depending on your individual skill level, level of maturity, and readiness to learn.
Our three programs allow you to learn simple ideas about leadership when you’re young and more complex skills as you grow older. This means that you can attend White Stag leadership camp as a 6th grader and return again and again to learn more.
Our program is open to all youth. Some of our participants are members of Boy Scout troops. If you’re a Boy Scout, you can attend White Stag Sierra before or after National Youth Leadership Training (NYLT), which many years ago was based on the White Stag model. Unlike NYLT, White Stag is for all ages. Choose a phase based on your age, maturity, experience, physical ability, grade level and Scout rank.
- If you are 11-13 years old or you’ve completed the 5th grade, you can learn how to be an expert small team member in Patrol Member Development.
- If you are 13-15 years old, you can learn the skills of a small team leader in Patrol Leader Development.
- If you are 15-17 years old, you can learn how to be a leader of multiple teams in Troop Leadership Development.
We are only accepting 120 participants this year. Candidates are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. We ran out of space last year, so apply early and pay fees on time to reserve a space.
