COPE & Climbing - Home

We offer a complete package of opportunities to every range of Scout, from Cub Scout up through Venture Crew!

 Our facilities are open year round for scouting groups as well as non-scouting groups.

The Council Headquarters are in Charlotte, NC with facilities at the Mecklenburg Scout Reservation (Camp Grimes) in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains and Belk Scout Camp in Midland, NC.

Schedule a Climbing Event for Your Unit!

The tower(s), climbing wall, zip-line, low or high COPE can be reserved by your unit for a “fun day” year around. Simply select the desired activity when making a reservation from the council webpage for each camp.
