Application Process

We believe in partnering with parents to make sure that every child who attends Akeela is in the best possible camp for him or her. Our goal is to create a community each summer where every single camper feels successful and connected.


If you have not already been in contact with us, please complete this very brief inquiry form:

Upon receipt of your information, we will send you our printed materials and then be in touch to discuss Akeela with you.


Reserve a spot by sending an Enrollment Form with a placeholder payment to our winter address (314 Bryn Mawr Avenue, Bala Cynwyd, PA 19004) or email to NOTE: This payment is NOT processed or deposited until you and the Camp mutually agree on your camper’s attendance.

Due to high demand, families can save a spot at camp – risk free – while working with us to determine the best fit for their child. Call us (866-680-4744) with questions about availability or details about the application placeholder payment. Not sure which program is right for you? Check out this page where we compare & contrast our two camp locations.


In order for us to fully consider an application, we ask for the following supporting materials, used to help us get to know you and your child. NOTE: Due to the high volume of applications we receive, we ask parents to please have professionals complete Part IV of this application ASAP. We will follow up with questions or concerns for professionals after receiving these materials. Thanks!
