The Odyssey of the Mind Homestay program offers a chance for us to develop friendships and learn about International teams. Members of our Odyssey family invite an International Team and their coaches to visit their home following the close of World Finals. This year World Finals is at Michigan State University! Homestays will begin Sunday May 26 of Memorial Weekend. Most Homestays last just 5 to 7 days. International teams from over 15 different countries including Germany, Poland, Japan, Kazakhstan, and Russia are hoping for a Homestay experience. We are hoping YOU will be one of the hosting families this year! If you are interested in hosting an International team please contact Odyssey of the Mind Homestay Coordinator Tom Scott at email@example.com myself, Cindy Idema, Michigan’s Odyssey of the Mind Homestay Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Looking forward to hearing from you soon!
