SUNY Adirondack Continuing Education has a long tradition of offering youth programing.  From the ever popular Summer Enrichment program, to the expanding Winter Enrichment program and the newly added After School Enrichment program, we are dedicated to providing interesting, enriching learning experiences for our area youth.

In addition to our signature programs, we also offer open enrollment courses each fall and spring semester.  Many teenagers in the area, ready to embark on gaining a driver’s license, take advantage of our 5 hour Pre-licensing Class.  Youth wanting to operate a Personal Watercraft in our region’s lakes, enroll in our About Boating Safety class. 

Local organizations, looking to do team building for their members, take advantage of our Adventure Sports facility and equipment.  From the ropes course, to the zip line, youth learn to work together as a team and gain lifelong skills.
