Town of Webb students in grades third through fifth are invited to participate in a Youth Experience Hike at McCauley Mountain on Tuesday, May 15th.
The hike is sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of the Central Adirondacks in cooperation with Carl Klossner, Interim School Principal and the Kiwanis Youth Experience Committee.
The hike will begin at the McCauley Base Lodge and will proceed to the top of McCauley via one ski trail and down another route.
While at the top, the children will have the opportunity to see a spectacular view of the Fulton Chain of Lakes. Anne Thornton, executive director of YMCA Camp Gorham and Kiwanis member, and her staff will assist with the event.
Students will be transported by school bus to McCauley at the end of the school day.
Parents will need to pick up their children no later than 4 p.m. at McCauley. A flyer/permission slip will be distributed at school.
“All third through fifth graders are invited and encouraged to participate in this event, which will render a strong feeling of accomplishment and many scenic memories,” said Sheila Brady, chairperson of the committee.
The Youth Experience projects are an outgrowth of a survey conducted several years ago by the Youth Committee to identify wilderness and tourist experiences that local children might have an interest in but have not had the opportunity to enjoy in our tourism-oriented community.
Previous outdoor programs included a climb to the top of Rondaxe (Bald) Mountain, kayaking on the Moose River, and snowshoeing.
