C.O.P.E. Program

C.O.P.E.: Informational Sheet and Pricing

Challenge Outdoor Personal Experience, or C.O.P.E., is the challenge course (ropes course) program of the Boy Scouts of America. It is a series of physical, mental and emotional challenges facilitated by a trained staff directed at enhancing personal growth. Hold Harmless and Medical Release Information.


CarabinerThe recognized goals of the program are:
. Self esteem
. Communication
. Trust
. Leadership
. Problem Solving
. Decision Making
. Teamwork



What makes C.O.P.E. special?

  1. It has challenges but is not an obstacle course- Traditional obstacle courses emphasize physical performance and exclude non-athletes from success. C.O.P.E. encourages "personal best" performance from each individual while increasing their awareness of their physical self.

  2. It can be a thrilling experience but it is not a "thrill ride" - Although elements of C.O.P.E. may seem like "thrill rides" , the difference is that the participants must invest personal effort, responsibility and commitment to reach each level. They must decide for themselves how far they go and when, or if, to take the next step.

  3. Safety is everyone's responsibility- Staff and participants are actively involved in maintaining a safe program. Using safety skills and understanding risk ensures Emotional as well as physical well being of everyone.

  4. Each experience is customized for the group/individual. - Since one of the goals of the program to to enhance self-esteem, the experience must be challenging but not futile. Each group also has its own goals and objectives that can be best met by careful selection of challenges.

  5. The staff "facilitates", the group "leads" -The staff sets-up the program, ensures safety, presents the challenges and facilitates the group/individual processing of the experience, but does not give "answers". The group must solve problems and make decision themselves.

Who uses C.O.P.E.?
C.O.P.E. is adapted to the needs and goals for the age and dynamics of the group. (Minimum age 13)
