CAP Reflections, by Brittany Salley-Rains

The Community Adventure Program has changed my life. Not only has it awakened in me a passion I never knew existed; it has increased my awareness about environmental issues in my community and shown me that I can make a difference.  After taking the CAP class for the first time I realized that I loved being outdoors and that I was very interested in outdoor survival techniques. Since that first class I have taken two others and am currently serving as a student mentor in CAP classes and participating in a CE with the Cottonwood Institute. I also started the CAP club at my school with a few friends and have decided to design my culminating project around outdoor survival skills. None of this would be happening if I had not taken CAP.

After participating in three CAP classes and their action projects I came to realize that I can make a difference in my community. CAP gave me the opportunity to brainstorm environmental issues in Boulder as well as design and implement 3 projects with my classmates. Not only was I helping others but developing personal skills such as leadership and public speaking.

Community Adventure Program has empowered me to explore new ideas and volunteer in my community. It has enriched my life in so many different ways and I wouldn’t be the same without it.
