Share Your La Vida Story

At some point in our lives, we all heard a story that has inspired us, or we have lived out our own story in a way that has inspired others. For almost 50 years, La Vida has been a place for the living and telling of these stories. With this in mind, we're seeking to collect and preserve these stories for generations to come. Whether it was during your Discovery Course, on an Adirondack Expedition, overseas with Compass, or a day at the ropes course, we want to hear your La Vida story!
