Facilities & Treks
White Stag teaches outdoor living skills. The facility is rustic in nature, and a camping and hiking experience. Participants will sleep in the outdoors in tents they bring with them and out under the stars during overnight hikes. The backpacking trek is with light-weight packs. Youth take only their sleeping bag, pads, and change of clothes. Tents stay at camp, leaving all their extra gear and clothes inside.
Youth and Adult Staff
Adult Advisors and Youth Counselors go through a structured 10 month Staff Development training. The majority of our youth and adults have served on staff for several years. Additionally, all adults are trained in a specialized Youth Protection training through Scouts BSA. The Youth Staff have all graduated from the program. Our staff to camper ratio is about 1 staff for every 4 campers.
What to Bring
Participants need to bring camping gear and specific clothing. For a complete list, please download the Packing and Equipment List found below. Sporting goods stores that carry backpacking equipment can help you decide what to buy. Do not purchase expensive items. Several department stores carry outdoor gear at good prices. Rental gear is also available. Items can be purchased online, however, the participant should always try on the backpack for fit before purchasing.
Everyone wears a uniform while participating in the program. It creates a feeling of belonging, reduces distractions, and also instills discipline. Participants are required to bring tan or khaki pants or shorts. For modesty, shorts must be a mid-thigh length and not be shorter than to the fingertips with the arm hanging straight down. We provide two uniform tee shirts. Extra shirts are available for purchase during registration.
