Abstract: This article reports the results of a study which examined the effects of participation in a low-element challenge course on younger adolescents' perceptions of group cohesion. A pre and post test of the Group Cohesion Evaluation Questionnaire was administered to 167 participants. Results supported that group cohesion developed through the one-day, low-element challenge course experience, and that race, gender, and age of participants did not affect their perception of group cohesion.
