From Oct 6'th Adirondack Daily Enterprise by Joe Hackett
...Fortunately, many children are now learning it from 'their gym teachers. At the Lake Placid Central School, students receive instruction in archery, fly fishing, mountain biking and more.
In Tupper Lake, students have opportunities to learn land navigation skills while using GPS units, and they can cross-country ski or snowshoe from the school's playground onto the nearby nature trails.
At Keene Valley Central, students must participate in an overnight camping trip and document a climb up a High Peak as a requirement for graduation. It appears many of the local educators are on the right track.'
Hail to these Adirondack Schools.
