Who Can Participate in COPE and Climbing Programs

Age- and rank-appropriate guidelines have been developed by the Boy Scouts of America based on the mental, physical, emotional, and social maturity of its youth members. These guidelines apply to Cub Scout packs, Boy Scout troops, Varsity Scout teams, and Venturing crews.

The BSA limits council and district activites to bouldering, top-rope belayed climbing, and belayed rappelling. Units that elect to participate in caving, snow and ice climbing and lead climbing without a top-rope belay should receive training from a nationally recognized organization that trains climbing instructors.
