What a great weekend we had! We want to thank all of those who made it possible for us to hold our first Semper Fi Odyssey Spousal Retreat here on the mountain at Roaring Run. We have yet again been able to extend our family ties even further through delicious food, high adventure, and most importantly friendship. Already excited and planning for our next one. Dates will be announced after the new year. Wishing you and your family all the best this holiday season! #3Most from all of us at Outdoor Odyssey.

How We Do It

Outdoor Odyssey’s approach to experiential learning and teambuilding is quite unique.  While many high adventure outfits offer exhilarating experiences for individuals and teams they are missing one primary element.  We base everything that we facilitate on a set of leadership principles that apply to everyday work, life, and relationships.  Our goal is to build confidence in the individual while instilling ideas on how that individual can become a more effective leader.  Our focus is not only on building leaders but also on the team and how important communication, trust, cooperation, and acceptance of all members of any team is.

Facilities:

– Tailored Leadership & Teambuilding packages
– Various lodging options from rustic cabins to luxury lodges
– Conference Center for meetings/dining
– 60’ climbing complex with rappelling, 3 zip lines, climbing, leap of faith, and more
– 12 element Leadership Reaction Course

– 20 element High Ropes Course
– 12 element Low Ropes Course
– Sahalie Adventure Challenge Center – the area’s only indoor heated climbing and ropes facility
– Low Impact Initiatives for any age
