Outdoor Odyssey is a multi-faceted leadership academy founded in 1998.
Our primary mission is to pair area youth with a mentor and provide these teams with a unique wilderness experience at our 500-acre Laurel Highland camp. We incorporate leadership skills, high adventure, and team-building into a week-long curriculum that sets the stage for a year of follow on activity between our mentors and their teams. We provide team builders to all types of organizations, ranging from corporations and universities to high schools and other clubs/teams. We pride ourselves on tailoring all of our team builders to meet your organization’s needs and goals. We strive to provide each group with top notch adventure programming, unrivaled leadership curriculum and superior service. The perfect team-builder for your organization is just a contact away.
We're proud to be heading full speed into our twentieth summer! With our twentieth operating year well underway it means this very special summer season is almost upon us. Countless individuals from campers to mentors, junior counselors to counselors, loyal supporters and all of those with a lifetime membership to Outdoor Odyssey have made us who we are. We want to see all of you back on the mountain! Several former and current staff members are planning a series of events to celebrate summer 20 for the entire ODO family to enjoy and celebrate on the mountain!
Let's call it a reunion! Mark July 7th on your calendars!
We'll start the day with the revival of the Roaring Run Mountain Challenge! We'll be offering several versions of the RRMC. There will be a 5K, 10K, and 10 mile adventure course to conquer kicking off at 9 am for all ages. We couldn't start this day off without a bit of shared adversity for all to enjoy! We'll be setting up our full adventure course with obstacles and plenty of mud for anyone that wants to get dirty and earn another ODO t-shirt! Cost for the RRMC will be only $25!
A twentieth anniversary celebration dinner will be held in the chow hall at 6 pm! This should give anyone who takes on the RRMC plenty of time to ice those sore muscles and get ready for the evening! The evening will definitely be one to remember and we hope to see as many members of the ODO family as possible! If we run out of room in the chow hall we'll rent tents! Please sign up for the dinner using the google form linked below!
