THE STORY:

THE PIECE wrote -

(Each week we're giving away amazing experiences and gifts, so stay tuned for prizes and check out Crowdrise promos for more fun ways to win!)

We're in the final weeks before our first Camp & need your help to get a few more campers! 

Camp Odyssey changed our lives as teens in the 90's, and decades later, we have come together to proudly revive the program that touched hundreds of participants. FREE to attend, we believe ALL youth should have equal access to this powerful experience regardless of resources. It costs us about $1000 per camper, and since Campers participate in a hefty 87 hours of exercises, games & dialogues (NOT counting the un-official hours they'll spend gabbing with roommates), even $11.49 gets a camper 1 hour of lifelong memories!

Your money goes directly to the youths' experiences!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Camp Odyssey is an experiential journey where 14-18 year olds engage openly and honestly to address topics around oppression, and face personal & societal views on issues ranging from race, culture and immigration to orientation, gender, ableism, power and class. For 6 nights & 7 challenging days they'll reflect and interact with people vastly different from themselves, and gain the understanding, skills & resources needed to work against discrimination and create social change!!!

Thank you so much for joining us in creating a just and equitable society, where individuals are respected as human beings, and where we can all live without fear. Your contribution sends a message of peace & inclusion, and you stand in good company alongside allies such as:

(Disclaimer: If you don't believe a brand-spanking new Crowdrise team could have racked up the very conservative estimate of 3978 volunteer hours, just ask our moms, our bosses (just kidding, we never worked on Odyssey while we were at our day-jobs), our significant others (or more revealingly, our LACK of significant others), and our Internet Service Providers! Camp Odyssey is our labor of love, and is entirely run off the blood, sweat and tears of tiny little hippie forest nymphs deep in the Ochoco Mountains...)
