Participants come to White Stag for the first time because their friends told them it’s fun. Sure–it’s great that we develop skills like planning, communication, evaluation, and sharing leadership–but without exception, when you ask what they remember about summer camp, it’s “fun”.

High-adventure is what White Stag Sierra is about. Hiking in the high Sierras. Swimming in the mountain lakes. Adventure among the alpine trees. Games with a purpose. Songs by a campfire. Ceremonies among the crickets in the night.

It’s the team spirit that makes the difference. We challenge you with something hard, and encourage you to try harder. You work with a team you’ve never met before, and everyone pushes you forward.

Symbolizing your week’s adventure for this one week, you’re challenged to create a patrol flag that stands for your togetherness and hard work. We celebrate the thousands of youth that have answered the call to “Follow the White Stag.”
