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.

The Center for Autism Research (CAR) is a collaborative effort between The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and the University of Pennsylvania. As one of the largest and most comprehensive autism research centers in the world, our mission is to understand the causes of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in order develop more effective treatments. CAR is also committed to serving the needs of families living with ASD through evidence-based education, guidance and clinical services. We developed the CAR Autism Roadmap (www.carautismroadmap.org) to help families answer questions about life with autism and to connect them with resources in their community, whether they are new to the diagnosis or have lived with it for years. CAR also developed www.autismMatch.org to connect families with studies that are a match for them! Families who participate in CAR research receive comprehensive assessment reports and are paid for their time and some travel expenses. Learn about CAR at www.centerforautismresearch.org.
