COE's Alumni Adventures


COE's Outfitting Center, Special Programs, and the Cornell Team and Leadership Center are not just for students, COE also specializes in serving Cornell Alumni, families, and friends! Whether we come to your location, or you come back to Ithaca, we can deliver an active and fun learning adventure, guaranteed to make a difference. No experience needed and programs are designed for individuals of all fitness levels.

Corporate and Work Groups - The Cornell Team and Leadership Center can help your work group, company, team, or non-profit move to that next performance level. Learn how COE has worked with HSBC, Corning, Proctor and Gamble, and other Fortune 500 companies, as well as small businesses and non-profits, to enhance leadership, teamwork, and organizational growth. Partnering with top-ranked Cornell faculty and programs, the Cornell Team and Leadership Center is a national leader in active learning and professional development. 

Families - Through Special Programs COE has a number of activities for Cornell families and Cornellians of all ages. Let COE provide a custom adventure, from an hour or two of the Best of Ithaca to a full blown expedition. Activities can include rock climbing at the Lindseth Climbing Wall, low and high ropes course elements at the Hoffman Challenge Course, tree climbing, Tyrolean traverses of the gorges, canoeing, gorge hikes, and much more. Or, rent your own adventure through COE's Outfitting Center, the Finger Lakes region's most comprehensive outdoor gear rental location. Also, check out our parent-teen programs, offered through Cornell Adult University.

Friends and Individuals - With a friend, a group of friends, or just solo, learn a new skill, try something new, or just plain wow yourself! Through "Learn to Climb" programs try rock climbing, tree climbing, or ice climbing. Do a Tyrolean traverse across a gorge, rappel from the top of Schoellkopf Stadium, go cross country skiing, or hike a gorge with Special Programs. Rent your own adventure with the Outfitting Center. Become a Cornell student again and join a COE expedition during  Fall, Winter, Spring, or Summer break.

Youth - COE has numerous programs for children ranging from 8 to 18. Our regular Youth Programs include rock climbing, canoeing, tree climbing, and more. We also do birthday parties and special events for youth groups. Or we can custom deliver any of our programs to individuals or groups ranging into the hundreds.
