Whether you simply want to rent out the facility for an afternoon or you want a full-scale, activity packed week for your group, Copper Cannon is the right place for all of your needs. Rentals at Copper Cannon Camp are fully customizable in every way, allowing you to tailor your program in every category to get just the experience you are looking for. The camp is available for activities as small-scale as an outdoor classroom for local school groups or a two-hour nature hiking program. Then the activities can range all the way up to a full week of “camp” where Copper Cannon staff lead activities, cook meals and even help with transportation. The choice is yours.

Team Building and Ropes Courses
Copper Cannon is a popular place for “low ropes” or team building activities for everyone from corporate groups to school children. Our staff are trained in activities designed to help promote group unity, cooperation, trust, leadership and communication. Participants quickly learn to work as a team in various activities that are fun, educational, challenging and insightful for everyone involved. Team building activities can be as simple as cooperative games played in an open field with minimal supplies. They can involve our “low ropes course” elements, activities that give you all the challenges of a full ropes course but not as high off the ground. And finally, Copper Cannon’s high ropes course is customizable to include only the zip line or a five-part high ropes course that results in a trip down the zip line. Any way your group chooses, the activities are sure to bring your group closer together.

Staff-led Activities
Groups renting at Copper Cannon are of course free to go about their own activities as they please, but our staff are trained to provide fun and educational activities if your group desires it. We can teach your group archery at our own archery course, outdoor living skills in the national forest or astronomy late at night. We can put together scavenger hunts, lead nature hikes through a beautiful setting or facilitate large group games in the meadow. Relying on Copper Cannon to assist with your programming can take a load off for group leaders and administrators. We are in the business of having fun and providing fun and learning for others, so you know any programming you get from our camp will be top-notch!

Outdoor Education
Various ecosystems, miles of trails, the Gale River running through the property, the 800,000-acre White Mountain National Forest connected to camp – what more could you ask for in an interactive, up-close outdoor classroom? Copper Cannon’s location and setting make it the perfect destination for school groups and anyone looking for an educational experience. Let our staff take you on a nature hike through the woods of camp to learn about the health of the forest. Take part in a wilderness survival course to learn about fire building, shelter building and primitive hunting methods. Or simply bring your own curriculum and bring the lesson to life in a scenic setting.
