Our Story A Story as Unique as Yours

Our Journey

We launched Odyssey Teen Camp in 2002 by posing a question: What would happen if kindness and compassion replaced judgment and competition in the camp environment? In the two decades since, we have seen firsthand that OTC isn’t just a different kind of summer camp – it is a transformative experience.

Self Discovery

Odyssey Teen Camp helps teenagers build meaningful relationships with their peers while embarking on their unique journeys of self-discovery.

Our campers experience the pure exhilaration that comes from being included, honored, and celebrated for exactly who they are. They leave OTC instilled with the confidence to reimagine their place in the world. And they forever remain a part of the OTC family.

Being Our Best Selves

From our founder ...


Odyssey Teen Camp began in 2002 with about 70 campers. We grew quickly, soon averaging 250 campers a year. Under the leadership of founder and director Adam Simon, OTC has never wavered from our mission: providing teens with the best summer of their lives.

We are proud that for the past two decades, we have offered a unique, welcoming, and transformative environment where teens feel seen, safe, and celebrated just for being themselves.
