Meet Our Campers

Akeela campers are boys and girls completing grades 3 – 10 who are excited about a camp experience that supports their social growth. Many have been diagnosed with Asperger’s, NVLD or a similar neurodiverse profile. At Akeela, they truly belong and find lifelong friends.

All About Akeela

A three-and-a-half week sleep-away camp in the beautiful Green Mountains of Vermont. Campers live in cabins with up to 8 peers and 4 counselors. Our traditional New England camp program includes arts, outdoor adventure & ropes course, athletics, pool & lakefront aquatics, and much more!

Our Other Programs

In addition to our camps for grades 3 – 10, Beyond Akeela prepares 10th – 12th graders for life after high school, with an emphasis on social skills, independence, college readiness and FUN! Family Camp is a one-week camp in mid-August for the entire family!

Our Families Say
The small setting and high counselor-to-camper ratio were great. The staff was fantastic. It’s hard to find a camp for an older child who wants to attend for the first time and Akeela was a great experience for Chris.
