Event Details




2019  COPE Level 1 Certified Instructor Training

Challenging Outdoor Personal Experience


Low COPE elements are increasingly difficult challenges on or near the ground.  The challenges are designed to enhance group and individual traits such as: self-esteem, decision making, problem solving, trust, teamwork, communication. and leadership. Opportunity is provided for every participant to achieve success as an individual and as part of a team.


High COPE elements are challenges involving climbing to heights of 20-30 fee and crossing cables, cargo nets, beams etc. while safely belayed or attached to static cables.  The perceived danger challenges each individual to their own personal level of risk-taking.  The concept of “Challenge by Choice” encourages each person to participate fully while maintaining the right to “opt-out” of any individual part of the program.


What:  Become a certified Level1 COPE Instructor and use this training with your Scouts, Venturers, and adults to bring your group together as a team. Decide which activities are needed and incorporate them into Low COPE activities that challenge and excite the participants, while achieving the desired results. Should you introduce them to Giant Texas Lizard Egg, Infinite Circle, Fing Fong Fooey, Moon Ball, or All Aboard...?  Facilitate effective reflections and debriefs after games, outings, and activities.
