Hands-on leadership adventure for youth, by youth

The White Stag Leadership Challenge is not your typical summer camp. This dynamic and engaging summer program is specifically designed to challenge young individuals in key areas of personal development. Participants embark on a journey that focuses on:

  • Building Confidence: Empowering individuals to trust in their abilities.

  • Fostering Self-Reliance: Encouraging independence and resourcefulness.

  • Learning Responsibility: Teaching the importance of accountability in a team setting.

  • Teamwork Skills: Developing the ability to work effectively with others.

Set in an outdoor environment, the program aims to disconnect participants from the distractions of everyday technology, like cell phones, the internet, and social media. This setting allows them to connect more deeply with themselves and their peers, fostering a sense of community and teamwork. Participants often return home with a renewed sense of excitement and a wealth of unique experiences.

Join us at the White Stag Leadership Adventure for an unforgettable summer of growth, adventure, and leadership development!

White Stag has been training and developing youth since 1958.


White Stag Leadership Development Academy, Inc. is a non-profit 501C3, all-volunteer organization that sponsors Scouts BSA, Venturing Crew 122, and runs the White Stag Leadership Development Training Program. The program teaches leadership skills to youth and adults from eleven specific leadership competencies. 

We believe leadership can be learned


Through leadership training and development, young people will gain personal growth that will help them be successful throughout life by improving self-confidence, self-reliance, interpersonal skills, emotional intelligence, and responsibility.
