C.O.P.E.

 
 

C.O.P.E stands for Challenging Outdoor Personal Experience.

C.O.P.E. consists of a series of elements and challenges designed to foster problem solving skills and group interaction. Seven key goals are developed:

 

Leadership

Self Esteem

Decision Making

Team Work

Trust

Communications

Problem Solving

 

 

 
These goals are accomplished through a challenge by choice program designed to encourage the group to work together, communicate with each other, and trust the group decision as they attempt a solution to the objective. The C.O.P.E. program generally consists of Initiative Games, Low Course Elements and High Course Elements. Each team of participants will move from one level to the next based on their abilities and understanding.
 

The C.O.P.E. Program is restricted to Scouts age 13 and older by January 1.

Safety is the MOST important of all C.O.P.E aspects. C.O.P.E. staff members are National Camp School certified and attend regular training updates.
