Social Growth and Fun!
Making friends, developing self-confidence, achieving independence, and treating others with kindness and compassion...
these outcomes explicitly drive everything that happens at Camp Akeela. Yet we never lose sight of the fact that
children come to camp to have fun!
Camp Akeela is a structured, well-rounded camp that offers a wide variety of activities. Campers travel to
most activities with their cabin and age group. The diversity of our program allows campers to try new things and to
enhance their existing skills. Akeela campers experience a sense of confidence and achievement on a daily basis.
A focus on important life skills underlies every activity at camp. For example, campers learning to canoe are
working on physical coordination and athletic competence, as well as practicing cooperation and teamwork. What really
makes Camp Akeela unique, however, is that this same canoeing activity is carefully customized to support the
specific social goals of the campers in that particular group.
The diversity of our program allows campers to try new things and to enhance skills in areas in which they already feel
successful. We recognize that children need to feel a sense of confidence and the ability to achieve on a daily basis.
Whether it's in the pool, at the art studio, at the farm, or on a baseball field, we know that our campers will not
only learn new skills but, more importantly, they will learn about themselves.
