Summer Leadership Camps

2020 CADA/CASL Summer Leadership Camps will be held at UC Santa Barbara. The camps are designed for student leaders who are interested in acquiring skills necessary to become successful school leaders. They work together and network with other students through camp councils. The advisor program, which is parallel to the student program, will cover topics designed to assist new and experienced advisors in developing the most effective strategies to meet their individual school activity plans. CADA/CASL Leadership Camps are designed for school delegations; a school adult (advisor, administrator, teacher) is required to attend with school delegations. A second adult is required for delegations of students with 15 or more.  

UPDATED 4/3 COVID-19 STATEMENT: In this unprecedented and unpredictable situation, we are continuing to monitor the status and safety of large group gatherings and direction from federal, state, and local officials. With camps still 3 months away, we are cautiously optimistic that the situation in our nation and state will improve.  In the interim, here is what we are doing with camp planning and registration:

  • Camp at Santa Clara University has been cancelled. Registered schools have been contacted.
  • All cancellation and change fees will be waived through June 1.
  • Early Bird Registration rate will be extended indefinitely.
  • When registering, select the "Send Check" option for payment, but hold off on sending payment until we confirm camps are happening! This will help facilitate refunds/cancellations in the event that the situation does not improve statewide.
  • We are limiting the number of students who can attend camp from any one school to no more than 18 for all new registrations (with the possibility of adding more students if needed). 

At this time, UC Santa Barbara has not made any decision regarding summer programs on their campuses. We will send updated information to the CADA membership and registered schools as the situation evolves.

2020 Registration is now open!
