Saturday, my son, Harry, had the opportunity to participate with a group of his friends in a COPE experience at the Ogden Service Center. The council has a tremendous COPE facility right in the backyard. If you haven’t had the chance to come and see or experience it, you should come on by. It is a marvelous facility staffed with certified and qualified instructors who ensure a quality, safe, and educational experience. This was Harry’s first chance to climb the Confidence Poll and as you can see he made it. To say that he was proud of himself would be an understatement. But I think his Mom and I are even more proud. Scouting has helped Harry to have several life changing experiences and without a doubt has made a difference in his life. Take advantage of this opportunity – just like Harry. Schedule your unit’s time at the COPE Course. You and your youth will be glad you did.
