Registration For Summer 2019!

Registering for Odyssey is a simple three step process. Please read this page completely before proceeding to the registration form.


Step 1: Browse through our Trip Catalog and pick out your three favorite trip choices.


Step 2: Read this page and our Cancellation Policy.



Before receiving your assignment, you should access the Equipment Lists for the trips you would like to participate, and gain an idea of the items you do not yet have. Odyssey encourages trippers to rent gear from Cornell Outdoor Education's Outfitting Center if they do not already have it.



Odyssey requires all participants submit the following documents to the Odyssey office by July 15th, although they may be submitted any time after receiving your trip placement information.

These forms may be submitted in any of the following ways:

1) Mailing Address:

Outdoor Odyssey

B01 Bartels Hall,

Ithaca, NY, 14853

2) Email:

3) Fax: 607-255-9881



Trippers will arrive between 11:00AM and 1:00PM on the start date of their trip, and store any belongings they have at our locked, North Campus storage location. Trips will depart early the next morning. All trips will conclude the morning of August 23rd, Cornell Move-in-Day. From this point, guides usually help trippers register at Barton Hall and move into their dorms. If you have questions please consult the trip and FAQ pages.   If you don't find answers there, email us at


Trip Specifics

In June, all registered trippers will receive letters from their guides and the coordinator with further specifics on their Odyssey trip. Trippers will be called by their guides in the weeks before the trip so that any lingering questions can be answered.



If you have any problems or questions about the trip please consult the trip and FAQ pages.  If you don't find answers there, email us at Please do not register until you and your parents are fully comfortable with every detail of the trip!


Step 3: Fill out this online form

Trippers will receive their confirmation email with their trip assignment within 48 hours of registering. Odyssey tries very hard to give all trippers their first or second choice trip, but occasionally that is not possible.
