C.O.P.E.

Camp Algonkin offers C.O.P.E. (Challenging Outdoor Personal Experience) programs for units during the summer camp season. Project C.O.P.E. is a series of interrelated events, which challenge participants on an individual and group level. Events are divided into three offered categories: initiative games, trust events and low ropes course. Project C.O.P.E. has seven objectives: Teamwork, Self-confidence, Trust, Leadership, Communication, Decision Making
and Problem Solving.

Games introduce teamwork concepts while also serving as warm up exercises. Trust events further teamwork development while developing risk taking from low to higher levels. Low rope elements involve teamwork close to the ground. 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.

All participants must be at least 13 years of age and in good physical condition. Units wishing to participate during their stay in camp should schedule a time for their unit. The C.O.P.E. Director will provide details on how to signup during the Leader’s Meeting on Sunday following retreat. Courses will be offered each afternoon during open program.

The C.O.P.E. course is operated under the supervision of a National Camp School certified director. The C.O.P.E. course was built under the strict standards of the Association for Challenge Course Technology. Standards of safety are stressed at every level.
