MCC COPE & Climbing
MCC COPE & Climbing Committee and Instructors
The MCC COPE & Climbing committee is comprised of 9 trained instructors plus our council professional advisor. A director or level II instructor must be present at all COPE or climbing activities in the council and they are the only people qualified to open the tower or COPE course at either camp. Please refer to the linked file below for details on instructor qualifications. If you have any questions about the program please feel free to reach out to any committee member.
The COPE & Climbing program requires a large staff of instructors to make our events successful. The committee members cannot do this alone. In addition to supporting the program, the large number of trained instructors are knowledgeable about the program, can help you plan an event and our climbing instructors are qualified to teach climbing merit badge.
