Campers entering grade 12

Odyssey campers will complete their Four Trails journey with a three-week long hiking experience that will inspire powerful moments of awe and discovery – from a day of hiking in the rain to enjoying the serenity from the top of a mountain peak.

Odyssey groups spend their first days at camp preparing for their adventure and gaining confidence in their gear before leaving for the trail. Groups venture through boulder fields, old growth forests, and alpine terrain. Campers carry all the individual and group gear they will need on a day-to-day basis, with a food and equipment resupply at the halfway point of the journey.

Upon their return to Merrowvista, they will share their insight with the camp community and receive their well-earned vests.

“Every summer my son returns having made a palpable leap in maturity. Sometimes the progress he's made comes out in a conversation where he expresses a belief system that has no doubt been influenced by the wonderful values reinforced at camp. We use 'best self' as shorthand for asking if behavior is in line with values, and when I ask, 'Are you being your best self right now?' That usually sparks some reflection.”
