Weekend COPE & Climbing Programs

Program Overview
The weekend COPE program offers the opportunity for your Troop, Crew, Post, or a youth group of any kind to experience a team building program like no other. Low COPE consists of warm-up activities and initiative games in the field before moving on to the Low COPE course. This course includes 12 elements low to the ground, ranging from the Archimedes Bridge to the 12-foot Wall. High COPE will take your group 20 feet into the trees where they will individually attempt to complete a string of challenges – ending with a zip line experience! Adults are invited to participate.
