No, this is not a sleep away camp, but a great day option for residents or anyone enjoying Tahoe vacation time. CLA offers 10 to 1 child to counselor ratio during each weekly themed camp! And the counselor? Not your typical high school or college student on break but one of CLA's teachers, an expert in outdoor fun infused with interesting topics. The camps combine traditional outdoor camp activities with educational adventures. Children can sign up for all eight weeks or just one session. Every summer Custom Learning Academy presents new and exciting camp themes.
