Experience new heights, new thrills, new adventures as you embark on Project C.O.P.E.! C.O.P.E., or Challenging Outdoor Personal Experience, takes scouts through a day-long excursion on our high-and-low ropes course, deep inside the Central Wisconsin forest.
At C.O.P.E., you will find yourself faced with experiences like none other. You will traverse across ropes at dizzying heights, scale our 35-foot climbing wall, and plunge into the wilderness on our safety-inspected zipline!
You will learn the value of leadership and teamwork as you cooperate with others to achieve a common goal. The low-ropes course will test your endurance and strength — both physical and socially — as you go across tire traverses and scale over low-walls.
Camp Napowan’s high-ropes course is programmed to help you face your fears and steady your skills as you walk across ropes and logs suspended in the air. Finally, you will reach the climbing wall. With each rock and placeholder you meet, you will gain new confidence and hone your skills to take on the high traverse.
A leap of faith from the climbing wall to the traverse is all that separates you from our amazing zipline! Hook in safely and slide off, zipping through past trees and foliage in an impressive experience you will be talking about long after it’s over.
While C.O.P.E. is only for scouts age 13 and over, the area does offer the Climbing merit badge for all scouts! Learn how to properly belay, climb, and repel down the side of our climbing tower under the guidance of experienced climbers and scouters!
This is an extraordinary event — one that tests scouts on their courage, their desire to achieve more, and their ability to work with others. And for the adult leaders, Camp Napowan offers an Adult Leader C.O.P.E. day. Corporations send employees to trainings such as this to instill leadership and teamwork — and all of that is offered at Camp Napowan!
