Purchasing Camp Clothing

CampSpot is our official camp supplier. To see the variety of Akeela options on CampSpot, simply click the link above. There is lots of great Akeela gear in our camp store, and all purchases are strictly optional for Beyond Akeela teens. Everyone will receive a year-specific Beyond Akeela t-shirt upon their arrival at camp! No clothing purchases are required.

Packing List

While travelling at the end of the Beyond Akeela session, teens will be packing and transporting their own luggage to several locations;Please do your best to follow our suggested packing list and avoid over-packing! Of course substitutions can be made for individual preferences. We recommend sending your teen with a list of everything you’ve packed. This will help your teen keep track of their belongings throughout the session.

All items brought to camp should be clearly marked with the camper’s name. We highly recommend Label Daddy products for this purpose. (Please enter AKEELA at checkout to have 25% of your order donated to CampLauncher!)
