I attended Camp Concord as an 10/11/12 yr old about 20 years ago. This may be outdated, but if it's the same camp being run in South Lake Tahoe, I remember it being a fun experience and would recommend it. I attended a two one week session one summer and a two week session another summer, both time with friend(s) from school and my sister (although I never saw my sister because we were in different cabins - which was fine with me!). The site is thickly wooded dotted with small cabins. The camper to counselor ratio is about 8 or 10 to 1. I always knew I was supervised and felt safe. Cabins are solid construction of wood w/ bunks (thin mattresses), no heat or electricity. Showers, bathroom facilities are separate from cabins. Boys and girls are separated for sleeping quarters, but would socialize during group activities (arts & crafts, swimming at lake,archery, hikes, excursions) or by age group with another (boys/girls) cabin. Counselors were always present, very friendly and outdoorsey folks. Swim tests (supervised treading of water in frigid lake tahoe - those who pass get an armband). Overnight stays in a meadow under the stars. Nightly campfire songs...i still remember some of them..., skits, etc. Send him with a warm sleeping bag, jeans, sneakers, flip flops for the shower, flashlight, sweats and windbreaker. It gets cold at night.
