Thetford Center
VT

Camp Akeela is a co-ed, overnight sleepaway camp with locations in Vermont and Wisconsin. Within a well-rounded, traditional camp program, Akeela is a small, supportive community that helps campers improve their social skills. Our campers are bright, creative boys and girls ages 9 - 18 who have difficulty connecting with their peers. Many, but not all, of our campers have been diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome or a non verbal learning disability. We offer top-notch instruction in dozens of activities, from swimming and boating to outdoor adventure, farm & garden, community service, athletics and an extensive arts program. Campers take comfort in the structure and predictability of the program, but also thrive when given a chance to pick their own activities. Akeela is an intentional community that values and celebrates each child and staff member. Campers make life-long friends, develop self-confidence, achieve independence, feel pride in their accomplishments, and leave camp with lasting memories filled with fun and spirit.



Vermont: Two sessions of 3.5 weeks each. Wisconsin: Two sessions of 2 weeks each.
