Project COPE (Challenging Outdoor Personal Experience) is an exciting outdoor activity that attracts older boys to Scouting. It is designed to meet the needs of today's scouts who are seeking greater challenges to their physical and mental abilities. Project COPE is based around seven goals that form the backbone of the program. They are: Teamwork, Planning, Leadership, Communication, Trust, Self-Esteem, Decision Making and Problem Solving

    The Durant Climbing Tower provides over 40 feet of vertical challenges for scouts of all ages.
    OSR offers a number of events during the year when the facilities are staffed with volunteer course instructors and supervised by BSA Camp School directors.  Events alternate between COPE and Climbing events.
    The Council provides a full set of climbing gear (helmets, harnesses, ropes, and even climbing shoes for 15 climbers). With this gear, and Council-trained climbing instructors, scouting units can top-rope anywhere in the state.
