The camping and outdoor program committee (COPC) is a critical leadership group entrusted with safely delivering the outdoor adventure that youth and adults expect and that lead to self-discovery and character development. The committee plans and oversees the council outdoor program and the facilities that are needed to support the program. Under the COPC’s leadership, all elements of the Scouting outdoor program collaborate to understand the market needs, develop relevant programs, and deploy facilities and resources to most effectively meet demands of increasingly diverse youth and adult populations.
The COPC is responsible for one of the most important and visible council operations. It oversees the success of the outdoor program, large property investments, significant annual operating expenditures and revenue opportunities, and quality components that attract youth and adult involvement.
