The following comes from Gemma, one of our OTC family.
To me camp is the only place I can be my complete self without being questioned or analyzed. Odyssey teen camp is the most accepting environment I have ever had the privilege of experiencing. Not only does everyone accept me for who I am, but they really helped me find who exactly I am and who I want to be. The counselors and campers helped educate me on a wide variety of concepts and possibilities that I never even knew existed. Before I spent my first summer at OTC I was a completely different person.
That sounds very dramatic but it’s not a stretch at all. Before the people, and the classes, and the amazing food, I was a much more apathetic person. This camp helped dig me out of a hole of stress and sadness I didn’t even realize I was in.
