Project COPE is an acronym for Challenging Outdoor Personal Experience. New to CVO for summer 2021, Project COPE consists of group-initiative games, trust events, and leadership-enabling elements. Participants will be moving, running and climbing in this course. Bring proper footwear, sun protection and a water bottle.

To complete the COPE program, you need to be physically fit. However, by varying the goals or adjusting limitations, most COPE activities and events can be customized to challenge each team and each participant at an appropriate level.

Some activities involve a group challenge, while others develop individual skills and agility. Participants will improve their skills to be able to devise solutions to a variety of problems to be used in Scouting and beyond.

The course takes place over three Saturdays: July 10th, July 17th, and July 24th. The program goes from 9 AM to 5 PM. Lunch will be provided. Participants must attend all 3 Saturdays and must be 13 years old or older. Course fees are $100 for all three days. Registration closes after June 28th.

If COVID restrictions restrict this course from taking place, we will run an online version on the same days and times. The cost for online C.O.P.E. is $30.
