Project C.O.P.E. (Challenging Outdoor Personal Experience)
The Atlanta Area Council invites all Boy Scout Troops, Varsity Scout Teams, Venture Crews, Ships, and Explorer Posts to come out and enjoy a weekend of Challenging Outdoor Personal Experience at the Project COPE Course at the Woodruff Scout Reservation near Blairsville, Georgia or the Project COPE Course at the Bert Adams Scout Reservation near Covington, Georgia.. Project COPE is a national program of the Boy Scouts of America. The program is composed of group initiative games, trust events, low-course events, and high-course events. Some activities involve a group challenge, while others develop individual skills and agility. Participants climb, swing, balance, jump, rappel, and devise solutions to a variety of problems. Most participants achieve much more than they imagined they could. See Special Note at bottom of this page regarding required forms. 2014 COPE Flyer - click here
