Youth Programs with the Cornell Team & Leadership Center  

Climb a 35 foot free standing pole and take a leap of faith, zip down the 400 foot zip line or cross the narrow catwalk balance beam all in an afternoon at the Hoffman Challenge Course.

We have worked with middle & high school groups, scout groups, birthday parties, families, youth groups, religious groups and many others. Group size can range from a few close friends to large youth groups or a summer camp.

The Cornell Team & Leadership Center will help design the perfect program for your kids or youth group. Program designs can include any of the following, icebreaking, thrills on the Hoffman Challenge Course, leadership development or teambuilding activities. You will work with our staff to design a program for your group that fits your schedule, budget and goals.

  • 1/2 day - $40/Person for up to 4 hours ($400 Minimum)

carry with me for a long time. It helped 
me to believe in myself and I now know that 
that I am capable of accomplishing things 
if I put my mind to it."
