Beyond Akeela Information Session (College Readiness Summer Program)
Join us for an informal virtual gathering to learn all about the Beyond Akeela community. Kevin and Kristin, camp directors, will share what sets Beyond Akeela apart as a unique community designed intentionally to launch neurodiverse teens forward into successful college transitions. You can expect to learn more about our progressive program, the amazing staff, and see lots of photos of camp.
Teens who have successful summers at Beyond Akeela are kind and creative, and enjoy interacting with “quirky” peers. They have average to above average intellectual capacity and thrive in structured settings that provide support socially and with executive functioning. They are considering a variety of college options.
Some Beyond Akeela teens have a diagnosis of Asperger’s or a similar ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) profile. Others may have ADD/ADHD or a social-based learning difference such as NLD (or NVLD). While not all campers have a diagnosis, they all share a desire for more fulfilling social connections.
