Camp Akeela is a traditional New England co-ed overnight (sleepaway) camp in Vermont that is designed specifically for “quirky” kids. Within a well-rounded, traditional camp program, Akeela is a small, supportive community that helps campers improve their social skills. Akeela campers are bright, creative boys and girls ages 9 - 17 who have difficulty connecting with their peers. Akeela also has a program for older teens who have completed 10th - 12th grades called Beyond Akeela.

Most of their campers have been diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome, NVLD (or NLD) or a similar neurodiverse profile. Many are undiagnosed but are described as “quirky” and share some characteristics with those on the very highest functioning end of the autism spectrum.

Akeela campers thrive in a world in which they are surrounded by peers with similar experiences and a staff who understands and embraces them.
