Youth Leaders are former campers who return as volunteers to run The Odyssey Program. They are passionate, dedicated, empathetic, skilled, and visionary leaders who work tirelessly to provide the same life-changing experience that they received as campers. They represent different races, cultures, religions, genders, orientations, incomes, geographic regions, upbringings, nationalities, abilities, backgrounds, experiences, and beliefs. But they work together in harmony to empower their peers to be informed leaders and compassionate human beings. Youth Leaders play an extraordinary role in camper recruitment, curriculum development, staff trainings, small and large group facilitation, mentorship, and leading cabin groups. In short, they are the invaluable superstars without whom Camp Odyssey could not operate.
Have you previously attended camp and want to return as a Youth Leader? We want to hear from you! The next opportunity to attend camp as a Youth Leader will be during our 2016 summer camp. Applications will be available early Spring 2016, but if you have any questions in the meantime, contact Mitch Fantin at [email protected].
