Tucker Leadership Lab

Tucker Leadership Lab is one of the premiere team building and leadership development challenge courses in the Midwest with over 100,000 participants. We work with businesses, schools, churches and sports teams to create better leaders and foster an environment of team growth and personal development.

Customized experiences for ground or climbing

Tucker Leadership Lab, founded in 2000, offers development for any group, any size, at any location. We offer ground, low and high team challenges designed to build trust, communication and confidence. This is a unique experience in our region, with facilitators who have a combined 100-plus years of challenge course and team-building experience. Some groups come back every year, taking away new skills and deepened relationships each time.

Our course is located on the William Jewell College campus in Liberty, Mo., and we have an extensive portable experience called the Quest Course that we can bring to you. View descriptions of our courses below.

Who can participate?

Our facilitators are trained to adapt experiential activities according to your group’s needs and abilities, allowing everyone to participate at the level they choose. Our courses are designed for ages 5th grade through adult. Please contact us if you have any concerns or special needs in your group.
