    Overview

    Odyssey Teen Camp started in 2002 as an experiment in what can happen when kindness and compassion intentionally replace judgment and competition. We know many teenagers struggle to find their way and feel good about themselves. This can be particularly true for the LGBTQ+ teens and all teens that feel like they don’t fit in.

    Odyssey Teen Camp is a unique and exceptionally fun place for all teenagers to have the summer of their lives! A sleep-away camp in the Berkshire Mountains of Massachusetts, we offer a safe, judgment-free summer home for teenagers to blossom and have fun.

    Odyssey boasts a diverse population including many campers who are shy and struggle with some social anxiety. Odyssey is proud to support our large LGBTQ+ community and we are welcoming to campers and staff of all genders. Odyssey helps all of these teens feel confident to express their authentic selves, make plenty of new friends, and enjoy camp on their own terms.

    All kinds of teens thrive in the community built on kindness and acceptance. Campers design their own schedule each day, choosing from over fifty activities. They choose from typical camp activities like art, dance, sports, music, nature, swimming, and boating, as well as unique Odyssey activities like firewalking, trance dance, discussion groups, hip-hop appreciation, sacred geometry, political discussion groups, tarot, henna, and more.

    Founder and Camp Director Adam Simon started Odyssey Teen Camp eighteen years ago to provide teenagers with a summer home where they would be included, honored and loved for exactly who they are. Every summer about 200 teens ages 12-18 come together with fifty counselors to create a fun, vibrant, and healing community for one another. At the beautiful location in the Berkshire mountains, campers can relax, try new things, and have more fun than they have had in a long time. Campers can choose one, two, three, and four week sessions. Find out more and register by checking out our website!
