COPE and Crate Stacking and Rock Climbing at Ockanickon - April 2015



Saturday April 11 to Sunday April 12 – Campout at Ockanickon Scout Reservation in Bucks County

During Low COPE (which stands for "Challenging Outdoor Physical Experience") on Saturday morning you'll participate in trust activities with your patrol, play Blind Swordsman, get over the wall, go through the spider web, and more! In the afternoon, Scouts who choose High COPE will climb up a huge ladder into the trees then walk among them, with various challenges along the way. At the end fly down the zip line! Senior Scouts may be invited back to do Night COPE. First Year Scouts will participate in Crate Stacking, a really fun activity that Troop 98 brought to Ockanickon (it's the only Scout camp where you can do this). See how high you can stack before falling, or race against time or even another Scout to "claim the tower". When you fall, knock down the tower like Angry Birds!

On Sunday morning we drive over to High Rocks for some awesome rock climbing on a live rock face, and rappelling down when you've reached the top.

First Year Scouts: You will soon receive a separate message with details on what to pack and bring for "shakedown" (inspection) at this Friday's Troop meeting.

Leave from St. John’s at 7:45AM on Saturday.  

Return to St. John’s on Sunday at 2:00PM.  


The cost for the weekend will be $40 plus the cost of your patrol food.
