BSA COPE Instructor Training – September 12-14, 2014

Who should attend?

The COPE committee will be conducting Instructor/Staff training on September 12-14 at Camp William B. Snyder. This will be an opportunity for Scouts ages 16 and older and Venturers of any age to get trained in the BSA Project COPE. Those over 18 can earn Instructor Level 1 or Level 2 certification, while those as young as 14 can become Facilitator in Training (FIT). It is a great course for those that are interested in becoming a part of the volunteer staff for the Camp WB Snyder COPE course which allows you to work with your own unit and others on the course. This is an overnight course and food will be provided. Plan to camp; bring a sleeping bag and a tent (or hammock).

Goal: The course goal is to ensure that you can safely and effectively facilitate a COPE event for a group at Camp WB Snyder under the direction of a National Camp School certified Level 2 Instructor. It will give you a working understanding of Project COPE and enable you to facilitate others in their leadership training.

What will I learn:

BSA COPE Instructor camp is a weekend course designed to teach:

· How to facilitate others in COPE activities.

· BSA guidelines that are related to COPE activities.

· How to effectively and safely supervise and administer the technical aspects of a COPE activity.
