Challenging Outdoor Personal Experience, or Project C.O.P.E., is the challenge course program of the Boy Scouts of America. It is a series of physical, mental and emotional challenges facilitated by trained and certified staff directed at enhancing personal growth.

In a nutshell, C.O.P.E. is the laboratory for leadership training. In an NCAC C.O.P.E. session, participants have the opportunity to discover their personal leadership style, and experience group dynamics as we transition from Forming, Storming, Norming to Performing (and Adjourning/Reforming).

Our staff is trained and experienced in using ice breakers, initiative games, trust training and exercises, low elements, and high elements to achieve the learning objectives of C.O.P.E.:

  • Self esteem
  • Communication
  • Trust
  • Leadership
  • Problem Solving
  • Decision Making
  • Teamwork
  • Planning

Our staff will work with your leaders to tailor a session specifically to your needs and abilities.
