What is COPE?
Project COPE stands for "Challenging Outdoor Personal Experience". It's a program provided by the Boy Scouts of America and the Mid-America Council and was created for those with a desire for high adventure. COPE offers a set of stimulating activities designed to meet the needs of today's youth and adults who are seeking greater mental challenges. Group initiative games, as well as low- and high-course activities, offer a chance to solve problems and scenarios designed to test both group and individual skills. COPE provides an opportunity for each participant to achieve success by helping him or her recognize their strengths and weaknesses. Participants will learn how to use these skills to help the team and themselves. Most participants accept the challenge, stretching their abilities and comfort levels to accomplish more than they ever dreamed possible. COPE is an effective tool for attracting and keeping older boys in Scouting.
