Challenging Outdoor Personal Experience (C.O.P.E.) comprises group initiative games, low course (12 feet and under), and high course activities (about 30 feet high). Some of the activities involve a group challenge while others test individual skills and agility. Participants climb, jump, balance, swing, and find many solutions to a variety of activities. Group activities are ideal for emphasizing the patrol method and developing leadership skills. The activities are not designed to be competitive or to be a race against time.  More important goals such as leadership, trust, teamwork, self-esteem, problem solving, communication, and decision making are emphasized. C.O.P.E. is a summer camp activity and may be available during the off season as well. Contact Denise Miller at the council service center to inquire about off season use and fees.

Scouts gain a National Rifle Association Basic Practical certification, BSA merit badge qualifications and an opportunity to gain Pro-Marksman status in the Winchester/NRA Marksmanship Qualification Program, the second step to becoming a Distinguished Expert.
