Project C.O.P.E. is a Challenging Outdoor Physical Experience program that challenges participants to reach their fullest potential. Those taking part are exposed to lessons and values that will last a lifetime. Our foundation is built on a philosophy called “Challenge by Choice.” Participants are given positive encouragement to strive for a goal that, to them, is beyond their reach. Whatever the challenge, “success is measured by attempt.”
Project COPE provides an opportunity for each participant to achieve success as an individual and as a member of a team. The activities are not designed to be competitive or to be races against time. The objectives include building teams; solving problems; making decisions; and developing trust, communication, leadership, and self-esteem as team members cooperate to achieve goals upon which they have agreed. The course is designed to foster personal growth in a shorter length of time than anything most people have experienced.
Requirements: Scouts must be First Class rank or above and 13 years old by January 1, 2013. Youth participants will be turned away at check-in if they do not meet the minimum age - NO EXCEPTIONS! This is a National Boy Scouts of America policy.
