(Challenging Outdoor Personal Experience)

Project C.O.P.E. is a National B.S.A. program that was formally started in 1983. The program is specifically designed for the older individual Scouts, who form two-person and group teams and is composed of initiative games, trust events, low course events and high course events.

Participants climb, swing, balance, jump, rappel and devise solutions to a variety of problems and situations. Most participants achieve much more than they ever imagined.

Program Status: Pending inspection due to drought.

While each C.O.P.E. Course is both different and unique, each participant that experiences it is encouraged to develop their own objectives. The program emphasis of C.O.P.E. revolves around seven major goals:

• TEAMWORK
• TRUST
• COMMUNICATION
• LEADERSHIP
• DECISION MAKING
• SELF-ESTEEM
• PROBLEM SOLVING

This is an excellent program for the older Scouts becoming leaders within the troop. National C.O.P.E. Standards require a minimum age level for course participation which is:  ALL C.O.P.E. PARTICIPANTS MUST BE 13 YEARS OF AGE BY JANUARY 1 OF THE YEAR THEY PARTICIPATE AT ANY C.O.P.E. COURSE. NO EXCEPTIONS.
