    Beyond Akeela blends elements of a traditional teen tour with life skills, community service, and outdoor adventure. Families chose Beyond Akeela because their teens struggle to make lasting meaningful relationships with their peers. Some have a diagnosis of ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder or Aspergers), 

    On Beyond Akeela Teenage Travel Program, while teenagers are having fun and building life-long friendships, our staff is helping them achieve their goals. Specifically, here are some of the things that we’re working on.

    • -A summer surrounded by a true peer group with similar experiences and interests
    • -Ongoing facilitation of social interactions by trip leaders who are experts in helping campers feel connected and socially successful Teenage Travel Program
