Post 58 is a group of students from the Portland area who engage in outdoor adventures under the guidance of experienced adults. These activities include rock climbing, backpacking, hiking, mountaineering and many other outdoor adventures. The Post is open to students ages 14-18. Members participate in trips around the Northwest as well as to many other mountain ranges and climbing areas.
Our mission is to provide an arena for personal growth and social interaction by creating diverse experiences that foster responsibility, respect, and a passion for the outdoors.
Our objectives are:
- To provide Post members with opportunities to learn climbing and wilderness skills through outdoor experiences with members of their peer group
- To provide Post members with an opportunity to learn group living and leadership skills.
- To enhance personal growth and self awareness.
- To teach respect for the wilderness.
- To provide service to the community and give back to the outdoor world.
