Climbing Program and C.O.P.E.

DOK’s Tower

DOK’s Tower is located at Lost Pines Scout Reservation near Bastrop and is the tallest climbing tower in Texas. The tower is the centerpiece of our council’s climbing program, operating during Scouts BSA Summer Camp, Winter Camp, and during other weekend events during the year. Scouts BSA Troops, Venturing Crews, and Sea Scouting Ships can reserve the tower for use during weekend camping – but only if the Scout unit has an adult leader who is BSA-certified as a Climbing Instructor.

Our council’s C.O.P.E. course is located at Griffith League Scout Ranch near Bastrop. C.O.P.E. (Challenging Outdoor Personal Experience) uses mental and physical challenges, low and high above ground to teach confidence, self-esteem, trust, leadership, team building and problem solving. C.O.P.E. participants climb, swing, balance, jump and think of solutions to a variety of activities.
