The bstrap command allows for clusters.

bstrap  progname [, reps(#) size(#) dots args(...) level(#) cluster(varnames)
                       idcluster(newvarname) saving(filename) double every(#)
replace noisily ]
            cluster(varnames) specifies the variable(s) identifying resampling
clusters.  If specified, the
                sample drawn during each replication is a bootstrap sample of

However, you may want to take a look at glm,  it allows for clustering and a
bootstrapped estimate of the variance.
