COPE Level I Instrructor

Challenging Outdoor Personal Experience (C.O.P.E.) is an outdoor program designed to build teamwork and develop leadership skills. It comprises a series of outdoor challenges, beginning with basic group initiative games and progressing to more complicated low-course and high-course activities. Some of these events involve a group effort, whereas others test individual skills and agility. Participants climb, swing, balance, jump, and rappel as well as think through solutions to a variety of challenges.

This course will provide leaders with the knowledge and skills necessary to facilitate groups through the C.O.P.E. program at Tanah Keeta Scout Reservation. These skills include pre-use inspections & reporting, safety measures & accident prevention, life safety systems, warm-ups & initiative games, trust activities, low & high course activities, managing fear, sequencing & processing, and more. 

This course serves as initial training for new C.O.P.E. Level 1 instructors as well as retraining for existing C.O.P.E. Level 1 instructors whose cards expire at the end of the 2017 camping season.
