"There are several reasons that I like using Hoffman [Challenge Course]... For me it has always been tremendously helpful in my intern orientation days.  It lets all of us start to get to know each other's character, nature, ability, our boundaries; people automatically show their comfort level for participations."    -- Phil Syphrit, Cornell Plantations Interns Program

"Everyone from your staff who has ever helped direct our program has always been enjoyable, professional, skillful, and very kind.                                                                                                                                                                                             

We look forward to working with you!
