Embracing Diversity: The Heart of Sleepaway Summer Camps

In a world that often feels like it's speaking in a language of labels and limitations, Odyssey Teen Camp (OTC) emerges as a sanctuary of boundless expression and unconditional acceptance. Nestled in the heart of nature's majesty, OTC is not just a camp; it's a transformative journey for teens aged 13-18, especially those who identify as LGBTQ+, gamers, goths, geeks, artists, and activists. Here, amid the lush greens of the Berkshire mountains, we've created a magical realm where the only label that sticks is 'uniquely you'.

Our mission is to illuminate the path of self-discovery, empowering our campers to embrace their full spectrum of vibrant colors. With a compassionate and nurturing spirit, we invite you to a summer experience filled with laughter, new friendships, and the joy of learning away from the digital glare. At OTC, every activity, conversation, and shared moment is rooted in inclusivity, acceptance, and personal growth. So, if you're ready to explore, express, and celebrate your individuality in an environment that champions diversity and champions your journey, welcome to Odyssey Teen Camp—where every teen is seen, safe, and celebrated.
