ODYSSEY WILDERNESS STARTS NEW SEASON
Brockman, Program Director
March 31, 2006
Tim Brockman, Program Director of Odyssey Wilderness Programs,
announced the program is now officially open and ready to accept
immediate placements of students. Odyssey closes each year for
three months from December to February.
"Our winter was restful and productive, and we have some
important news to report. On January 26, 2006, Odyssey received
School Accreditation from the Northwest Association of Accredited
Schools (NAAS). This enables us to offer school credit to our
students in core subjects including P.E., Health, English, History
and Science. Please contact us for more information on how our "Academic
Track" will benefit students."
Tim added that he is happy to welcome additional staff to the
programs as well as an in-depth psychological and psycho-educational
testing option for students. Visit Odyssey’s website, www.odysseynw.com,
for a complete list of staff and a list of test evaluations.
For more information or questions, please contact Sarah or Tim
"I look forward to working with all of the consultants
and families this year. I would like to catch up with everyone
and discuss a question we have been exploring. Why do educational
professionals refer families to Odyssey? I do not want you to
refer families to Odyssey because you have heard we do good work.
I do not want you to refer families to Odyssey because your clients
will sail on a traditional ship and learn about community. I
want to work with you because you believe the Odyssey program
provides a smaller more intimate alternative to the busy larger
programs. I want you to refer families to Odyssey because you
know the family will talk to a field therapist more than once
a week, and that we work with the family just as much as we work
with our students. I want you to refer your clients to Odyssey
because you care about results."
He added, "You are all wonderful people. We value the time you
take to meet with us. Visit our programs and feel what the ocean
breeze can do, even for you. We look forward to talking with
you soon. Again, if you want to know more about our exciting
new year, email me directly or give our offices a call."
