COPE Program

COPE:  Challenging Outdoor Personal Experience


A Project COPE course provides an opportunity for each participant to achieve success as an individual and as a member of a patrol or team.  Through initiatives, games, and mental and physical challenges, participants achieve the COPE objectives; building trust and confidence, developing leadership and problem solving skills and attaining a heightened sense of cooperation among team members.  The course is designed to build more self-confidence in a shorter period of time than anything most people have experienced.


Camp Sequassen's COPE facility consists of a high and low course and is open for unit activities year round except during July and August.   A COPE experience is an entire day of program.  Leaders looking to develop a powerful sense of teamwork among their members should opt for an all-day low COPE experience.  If the objective is to develop self-confidence and self-esteem through physical and emotional challenges, then the all-day low/high COPE experience is recommended.


  • An all-day team building low COPE experience is $35 per participant (minimum of 10 participants)
  • An all-day team building/challenge on the low and high COPE courses is $45 per participant (minimum of 12 participants)


Participants must be 13 years of age or older and provide a medical information form showing clearance for stressful activity.  For participants under the age of 18, a parental informed consent and release form is also required.  Please review the Reservation Procedure for additional requirements.
