Your Beyond Akeela Experience

At Beyond Akeela we believe in experiential learning in a socially immersive camp setting. This core philosophy is ingrained in everything you’ll do at camp. You will not feel like you are in a classroom, and there are no “classes” or “lectures.” We want to give you opportunities to have fun, with friends who you can relate to, through activities that allow you to build and practice skills that will help you be successful after high school.

There are three different groups within Beyond Akeela, which we establish based on grade level and where you are in your post-secondary journey. As we get to know you, we’ll help you decide which group is best for you. Some activities we will do all together, and others we will split into our smaller groups. Below, you’ll see some of the activities and trips you’ll enjoy while you’re at camp.

Activity Highlights

  • Outdoor Adventure: Day hikes, white water rafting, challenge courses
  • Health & Wellness: Exercise opportunities, swimming, yoga/mindfulness
  • Camp Activities: Choice-based activities in the arts, boating, outdoor adventure, sports, strategy games (D&D), and theatre
  • Group Outings: Bowling, farmer’s markets, mini-golf, museums
  • Community Fun: Talent shows, campfires, game nights, movie nights


Overnight Camping Trip (1 night) – You’ll get to spend a night away from campus, surrounded by your best camp friends, under the stars making s’mores and sharing stories! This trip is optional for all campers.

Day Trips – You’ll have lots of time to explore nearby towns and some of their popular attractions. You get get lots of choice on these trips, including who you spend your time with and what you do while we’re away. Past destinations include Northampton, MA, Brattleboro, VT and attractions like Canobie Lake Park and Kimball Farms in Westford, MA.

Boston Trip – Our last few days together we’ll go on a three day trip to Boston where you can see the parts of the city you want to see. You’ll have opportunities before we go to do some research on different attractions you want to check out, and you’ll have lots of choice while we’re in Boston. In the past we’ve checked out the New England Aquarium, Faneuil Hall Marketplace, Boston Common, Museum of Science and Industry, and explored all of the great history Boston has to offer!

Now that you have a better sense of what activities will fill your days, take some time to learn about what makes each program unique and how they will help prepare you for your post-secondary goals.
