For over 25 Years Odyssey has been inspiring our future leaders to reflect on their values, their goals, and their reflexive tendencies. We believe that teaching children to become the best version of themselves is needed now, more than ever!
Helping Hands Project
The Helping Hands Project™ is about discovery, inspiring your team, and giving back in a big way. During this globally recognized, team building program, your team will build prosthetic hands needed by hundreds of thousands of amputees around the world.
We believe that life-changing moments are created while learning valuable lessons in purpose-driven work, community-centric thinking, team collaboration, all in combination with critical teaming skills.
Join hundreds of other schools and organizations and thousands of participants who have experienced this powerful team building activity. Through our Helping Hands Project, together we have donated, built, and delivered over 29,000 hands to amputees in more than 75 developing countries.
This inspirational team building activity is available in both Helping Hands LIVE (with expert Odyssey Teams facilitation) and our DIY Build-a-Hand Team building kit, that invites you to lead the way.

Odyssey has had the pleasure of partnering with the 71 Rotary Clubs of Rotary International District 5160 to provide "A Life Changing Experience" for a select group of high school seniors for over 15 years. Camp Royal provides a safe, introspective, environment among the Trinity Mountains at the Bar 717 Ranch in Hyanpom, California. Would you like Odyssey to provide programming for your camp or leadership retreat? Watch the 2018 video to see what the participants have to say about their Camp Royal experience.
