How has Felix Ventures Impacted Your Life?
Felix Ventures campouts taught me how to be self-reliant and how to be comfortable being away from home. This, along with Felix's "Laundry Test", gave me the confidence I needed to apply for and attend an out-of-state college, which is one of the greatest 4 years of my life (besides the other 4 I spent with Felix Ventures!)
What is Your Favorite Felix Ventures Memory?
I have to say it was the 7 days I spent backpacking to the Cottonwood Lakes in the Sierra Nevadas. I grew up reading National Geographic magazines and looking at picture books with forests, wildlife, and rock formations. Being able to be among it all left a long-lasting impact and desire to do it again and again. At 16 years old I camped in bear country and climbed mountains! How wild is that?
