Camp Akeela

About Camp Akeela

Akeela is a summer camp community for neurodivergent children and teens. Many of our campers have been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD or a similar social communication disorder. Others are undiagnosed and lovingly described as “quirky.” Parents and teachers describe our campers as bright, kind, and creative. Our campers genuinely enjoy interacting with peers and often struggle to make deeper, more meaningful social connections.
