4-H delivers programs that help develop many of the behaviors that ropes courses were designed to instill, especially leadership and teamwork. During the spring of 2004, 17 teenagers were recruited by the advisory committee, Extension agents, and other individuals to spend a weekend on a ropes course, aptly named "challenge outdoor personal experience" (C.O.P.E). Findings from an evaluation of the weekend indicated the activities built teamwork, confidence in oneself, and confidence in the group.
