White Stag Sierra - Leadership Development Program 

Adult Staff - White Stag Sierra - Leadership Development Program


White Stag is a camp by youth for youth.

Being a candidate engages a youth in just the first three of nine levels of Leadership Development. Youth Staff represents the next set of three levels of Leadership Development. Adult Staff encompasses the last three levels of Leadership Development in the White Stag Sierra Leadership Development Program.

The candidates and Youth Staff have a great time at summer camp, but it’s the Adult  Staff who have the most fun and really learn leadership at the same time. 

The only limit we have to the success of our program is the amount of Adults in place to support the youth in their challenge to design and put on their Crew Super Activity: White Stag Sierra leadership Development Program. 

The teens who volunteer to serve on youth staff meet once a month for almost an entire year. They work closely together to learn more about leadership; they hone their outdoors skills; they practice presenting leadership skills; they design and test learning activities; they develop a plan for the week; they practice ceremonies; they test meals for the week of camp; and lots more.

Adults provide the mentoring and safety for the youth as they execute on their development and learning. 

You do not need to know anything about our program to become an adult leader. We will develop you in all the areas needed over the course of staff development and throughout camp. While we do not charge a staff fee for Adult leaders we do request a minimum donation to the White Stag Association of $100. This covers your membership in the association as well as your food at camp, Initial Class B Hiking Shirt, Graduation Neckerchief, Staff Patch, and for first year staffers a discount on their Official Staff Jacket. 

Please make your donation now before proceeding
