A Summer Camp For LGBTQ+ Teens & Allies Be Who You Are at OTC

LGBTQ+ campers at OTC

A Home For Everyone

Many campers say that the best thing about Odyssey Teen Camp is that they do not feel judged. In our two decades of operation, we have seen that when teens are freed from the fear and emotional stress of judgment, they can relax and let their true selves shine through. This, in turn, leads to the creation of a close-knit community, one in which campers make truly meaningful connections with others.

Here's What Campers Have to Say

Having such a positive and accepting environment is especially important to LGBTQ+ and non-binary teens. OTC has many campers and staff who identify as LGBTQ+, and we are one of only a few camps in the U.S. that offers accommodations and programs specifically designed for non-binary teens.

“There will never be enough words to express how OTC saved me. It gave me the chance to grow and love myself in ways I never thought possible. Without the people I met and experiences we shared, I would not be the person I am today.”

3 Reasons OTC is the best sleepaway camp for LGBTQ+ teens

  • We offer the nation’s only full-summer camp program for LGBTQ+ teens! Other camps only offer camps that span 2 weeks max! We offer 1, 2, 3 and 4 week sleepaway camp sessions.
  • We roll with it. In life, teens change, adapt, and grow every day. Camp should be no different. Every group of campers has different needs, and we pride ourselves on being flexible and adaptable, based on what our campers tell us they need.
  • We listen! Most of the activities we offer have come directly from the creative minds of our campers! Instead of forcing them to engage in traditional programs they may not like (sports, camping out), teens are encouraged to express themselves creativity with activities they tell us they enjoy!
