C.O.P.E
TAHOSA HIGH ADVENTURE BASE

EXCITING MENTAL CREATIVITY AND PHYSICAL CHALLENGES

C.O.P.E., also known as Challenging Outdoor Personal Experience or Tahosa Challenge, is a program aimed at stretching teenagers and young adults both mentally and physically. C.O.P.E. is located at the foot of the Indian Peaks Wilderness Area. Approximately 20 miles west of Boulder, Colorado, the camp's 300 acres of woodland sits at 9,000 feet in elevation.

Part of the National C.O.P.E. / Tahosa Challenge is located at Tahosa High Adventure Base, encouraging teenagers and adults to expand mental creativity, increase physical abilities, promote leadership skills and instill personal confidence. Not for the weak of heart, the program is geared to those who seek challenges and are ready in size and self-discipline to undergo the rigors of the course.

C.O.P.E. / Tahosa Challenge is a program aimed at strengthening Scouts and is designed to promote teamwork and foster leadership abilities. Participants will spend the weekend in teams; swinging, jumping, climbing, lifting, balancing, rappelling and belaying yourself and your team through activities of increasing difficulty as they go through our low and high ropes courses. As a participant you will take the lead on your team in solving "people puzzles" which increase in difficulty as the course progresses and by the end of the weekend you will be amazed at how well you have overcome your fears and how confident you have become in your abilities.

With comfortable sleeping arrangements, beautiful mountain views, hearty meals prepared by the Tahosa Challenge staff, and a weekend filled with unique challenges and fun, what more could you ask for?
