C.O.P.E and Climbing Training Level 1 and 2
CLIMBING INSTRUCTOR TRAINING
Hosted by Bay-Lakes & Samoset Councils
Boy Scouts and Venturing youth demand an exciting, challenging outdoor program. This requires volunteer leaders trained in various high adventure skills. The Bay-Lakes and Samoset councils are teaming up to provide Climbing instructor training. This training will allow leaders to conduct their own Climbing programs. In addition each council will be able to expand year-round programs at its camp with more trained instructors.
