Welcome to POST!  Check out this website for the latest news on upcoming workshops, trips, events, meetings and general POST news.


Look here for more information about the program, trips, and events, but also join the Facebook group ("POST"). 


UPCOMING EVENTS/REMINDERS:

 

Community Service Documentation: For current staff who need to document their community service hours for staffing trips, look in the forms section under "Community Service Hours for Staffing Trips", and fill out the school district form accordingly. Then get Scotty to sign off on it.


  • Current Staff- Remember you must complete at least 5 hours of POST Community service and attend at least 2 trips to be elligible to come on Desert School in mid-May!

 

The POST community is mourning the loss of one of its own, the amazing Lina Brown. Lina was killed January 31st, 2014 by an intoxicated driver. She touched the Garfield community with her genuine warmth, and vibrant spirit. Lina led her peers within the Garfield and POST communities with confidence and grace, was a smart and humble leader, and could make the best out of any situation. Lina was a shining star, her presence brightening wherever she happened to be. She is dearly missed, and loved by all who knew her, and by many who did not. May she rest in perfect peace.



POST FAQ:

What is POST? POST is a student-led outdoors program.

 

How do I get more involved in the program? The easiest way to get involved is coming on trips! Stay tuned to this website, check out the facebook group as well (called "POST")Feel free to contact any of the EC members or the advisor, Scott MacGowan.  (Look on the contact page for this information).

 

I have never camped before and I dont have any camping gear or clothing but I still want to come on a POST trip. What do I do? Easy! Talk to the leader of the trip an explain what items you are missing. The trip leader can put you in touch with our gear coordinator, Jackson Aumell (206-948-3171). Most often, we will be able to lend you the necessary gear. You can also talk with friends, family, or other POST members who may have gear that you can borrow. Please, do not feel the need to go out and buy new items for POST trips. Our goal is for anyone to feel comfortable going on POST trips.  

 

I am a parent who is concerned about my child going on a POST trip and I want to hear more details about the trip to make sure they will be safe: We prioritize safety on our trips, we have emergency response procedures, and make sure that all campers feel safe at all times. All of our student staff is first aid trained, with the majority having 18-hour Wilderness First Aid training certifications. If you want to hear specifically about the details of a trip, your biggest source of information will be the student trip leader. Feel free to call or email them with any questions or concerns. If you feel the need to talk to an adult, please contact the POST advisor, Scott MacGowan.


Stay tuned for more updates, and upcoming trips! If there are any questions regarding POST please do not hesitate to email ghspostec@gmail.com or call / text /email any of the E.C. (Executive Committee) members  or the POST advisor (visit the contact page for numbers and click on the names for emails).
