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.
