Welcome to Odyssey Outdoors!
Odyssey Outdoors is evolving daily into the energizing ‘go to’ website for families who care about raising great kids, giving them plenty of outdoor adventure, strength of character and appreciation of the environment. Odyssey is part blog and also part family adventure group. We currently have a pilot group of families near Seattle who meet for monthly outdoor adventures and character building activities. It’s been a blast hiking, camping, rock climbing, and biking with folks ages 3 to 50!
Want to join in the fun? Drop us a line at email@example.com with any thoughts or to start your own Odyssey family adventure group. Also, subscribe to our weekly newsletter on the right hand side of this page. Glad you’re here!
