Project COPE is a national program of the Boy Scouts of America. C.O.P.E. Is an acronym for “Challenging Outdoor Personal Experience” and it is designed to provide the participants with both group and individual challenges that encourage individuals to do their best and develop self-esteem among other things.
of Project COPE goes back to 1979-80 when the first COPE course in the country was built right here in St. Joseph, Missouri at Camp Geiger. Recently Camp Geiger completed a new state of the art course designed to carry Camp Geiger and the Pony Express Council well into the 21st Century.
Groups of 8-30 people who are seeking to expand their physical and mental abilities should consider the option of Project COPE. Group activities are designed to develop teamwork, communication and leadership abilities among many other skills. Numerous corporations and Fortune 500 companies use Project Cope courses each year to facilitate staff development. Locally, several businesses have done training using Camp Geiger’s COPE facilities. Church youth groups, school groups, and sports teams
too numerous to count have also used the COPE program to help them achieve their goals.
The Pony Express Council would like to encourage each visitor to our website to look at the photos available and consider if groups in which you or a family member are involved, would benefit from the COPE experience. Packages can include meals, overnight stays and of course, the COPE activities. For scheduling or for more information, contact the Pony Express Council
