Reserve Now


A Stay Like No Other

We have reserved a block of rooms at the Cranwell Resort and Spa in the Berkshires for Akeela families to come together for a fun filled weekend. Don’t miss this opportunity to get away, to pamper yourself and to bond with other Akeela families. We will relax, play, and share with each other in an amazing setting.

Simultaneously, the Akeela Winter Weekend will be going on at Camp Winadu, a short 20 minute drive from Cranwell. Stay & Play families can drop off their Akeela camper at the Winter Weekend before enjoying a wonderful weekend at the resort, or can choose the Winter Weekend Day Camper option on Saturday.


In An Extraordinary Location

The Family Stay & Play will take place at the Cranwell Resort and Spa in Lenox, MA. Cranwell’s 380 acres in the heart of the Berkshire Mountains is one of the largest spas in the Northeast, offering elegant accommodations, fine dining, outstanding amenities and exceptional service.

The Weekend Schedule

The Family Stay & Play is a chance for your family to have a relaxing weekend together and (re)connect with other Akeela families. Other than one or two parent-only roundtable meetings, led by Debbie and Eric, there will not be a set program. Each family has the freedom to choose their own activities and to go at their own pace! Cranwell has something for everyone, check out more of their amenities here: http://www.cranwell.com.

Frequently Asked Questions


Will there be organized meetings for parents during the weekend?
Camp Akeela’s directors, Debbie and Eric Sasson, will be on-site during the weekend. They will offer one or two planned parent only roundtable style meetings over the course of the weekend. More details about times and meeting locations to come!

Can my child attend the Akeela Winter Weekend reunion at the same time?
Yes, we scheduled these two events at the same time and in close proximity for this reason. You can drop your camper at the Winadu Lodge in Pittsfield before heading to Cranwell, and then pick him/her up in Pittsfield on Sunday afternoon. You can also choose to drop off your children at the Winter Weekend as day campers on Saturday. Please note, even day campers must complete the registration form found on the Winter Weekend web page.

What about my other children?
You are welcome to bring your children to the Cranwell Resort with you. However, we will not have staff there to provide babysitting services.

What should I pack?
Come prepared for a relaxing winter vacation. Our package includes access to Cranwell’s world-class resort amenities (some, such as spa treatments, at additional cost) — both indoor and outdoor. Bring both casual and business casual clothing, as well as a bathing suit, work-out clothes, play clothes and winter boots!
