COPE, Climbing and Covid-19

This camping season has been an adventure! So many camps cancelled their regular season but some did open their COPE and Climbing activities with social distancing, wearing masks and sanitizing equipment during operation based on manufacturers guidelines.

Please remember that your courses are still subject to inspection from an outside vendor and must meet the standards in NCAP FA-715.

In-person National Camping Schools were cancelled earlier this year. The COPE and Climbing Subcommittee is planning to offer COPE and Climbing Trainer programs in this fall and in the spring of 2021. We are excited to offer these programs, so please contact Rhonda Wright at for dates and locations.

Remember to have youth and adults wash hands before and after touching vertical gear, sanitize your hands, wear a mask and keep on climbing safely!
