FAYETTEVILLE -

    This year ACE Adventure Resort in Fayette County is giving high school students a hands-on approach to learning.

     And they get to have fun while doing it!
     Organizers are inviting any and all student groups to sign up for their classes that can take place this spring.
     They can take classes rafting on the river, climbing up rocks in the New River Gorge and while on a zipline course through the wilderness.

"I think every kid knows that the outdoors is fun and we just want to play into that fun element that learning can be fun. Because at the same time you are out doing fun things you're learning about all the things that make that possible," said ACE Adventure Resort Spokesman Dave Bassage.

     Staff members at ACE said they will be coming into nearby schools to promote the program and to let teachers know how to make it all possible.

     Or you can contact ACE resort yourself for more details.
