Carol Overly - AmeriCorps

“The Pennsylvania Mountain Service Corps has partnered with Outdoor Odyssey for nearly 18 years; and in that
time the Outdoor Odyssey staff has executed dozens of very affordable and exceptional leadership programs
for our group, all in a beautiful outdoor setting. The staff worked hard to make our experience positive and
dynamic every time. Our participants have stated that the programs they have attended at Outdoor Odyssey
have not only been inspirational but have also been a unique experience that would be hard to replicate!”

Marquis Thomas - Upper Saint Clair

“The Upper St. Clair Junior Mentors is a group of approximately 60 11th graders who welcome,
advise, and support incoming freshmen throughout the year. For the last five years of the program,
we have taken the Mentors to Outdoor Odyssey for a two-day training, and we couldn’t be more
satisfied with the experience. Through both the instruction and the challenges, Outdoor Odyssey has
given our Mentors the confidence, leadership expertise, and teamwork skills that they need to be
successful not only in this program, but for the rest of their lives.”
