C.O.P.S. Outward Bound Adventure

Loading Events

The Outward Bound® Adventure is planned for teenagers and young adults (ages 15 – 20) who are children of law enforcement officers who died in the line of duty, as determined by C.O.P.S. criteria.

Outward Bound® is an adventure-based program structured to inspire character development, self-discovery, compassion for others, and to actively engage in creating a better world. This program is designed to challenge surviving children to overcome the obstacles they face in their lives after losing their parent to a line-of-duty death.

This year, Outward Bound® Adventure is a water rafting trip taking place on the Colorado River through the Canyonlands National Park in Cataract Canyon, Utah. The Colorado River is a vital source of water for 40 million people. Its extensive system of dams, reservoirs, and aqueducts divert almost its entire flow for agricultural irrigation and urban water supply. Outward Bound® will give participants the opportunity to recognize and navigate various river obstacles, work as a team with other surviving children, and feel the exhilaration of the rushing rapids.

We hope that by attending Outward Bound® Adventure, surviving children will get a chance to relax in a comfortable setting that is removed from their everyday life, where they can make everlasting friendships with peers who can truly understand what they are going through.
