C.O.P.E.

The Challenging Outdoor Personal Experience (C.O.P.E.) program gives older Scouts the opportunity to develop themselves in a variety of fun and exciting ways at the first-rate Allen K. Forssmark C.O.P.E. course. The course - built up since the mid-90s by staff and volunteers such as Allen Forssmark and Jim Battenfelder - continues to expand in scope as the interest and participation grows with each year.

The flying squirrel looks easy, but because you don't have a running start, it's tougher than it looks.  Here Scouts take a stab at reaching out across the void.
