Annual Snowshoe Trip
The Post's annual Snowshoe Trip is always one great bonding experience for Postees. This year, we learned essential mountaineering skills, built our own snow caves, and climbed Mt. Multorpor with our snowshoes! We retired to the nice warm Mazama lodge for a night of fun games, cards, a movie and delicious dinner with ample “chill time” to socialize and meet new people.
Smith climbing Trip
Our annual fall trip to Smith is the starting call of the climbing season. It is always a great chance to try new and challenging climbs, push your limit on top-rope or try leading if you have passed the Leading on Rock Course. In the evening we relax in the warm twilight with friends as the fall sun warms the crisp desert air.
Pinnacles Climbing Trip
The beauty of Pinnacles National Park explains why the Post has visited it so many times. We experienced the wonderful California weather, the spectacular scenery and the great crags. Students new to rock climbing got to learn the basics of belaying, climbing and gear, while the more experienced were able to lead climb and try a few multi-pitch climbs.
The Post has joined with a number of local organizations that work with underserved youth in the Portland metropolitan area to provide meaningful outdoor education and adventure experiences for teenagers. These activities and trips include day hikes, challenge activities, rock climbs, backpack trips and even mountain climbs.

Post 58 provides teenagers in the Portland area with challenging outdoor experiences that provide opportunities for personal growth, connection with the nature and a way to interact with their peers away from the stress of school and digital distractions. The organization is largely student led and focuses on development of leadership, resilience, compassion and group living skills.
No other organization is doing this type of work for teens in the Portland area. The Post needs your help to continue its efforts. The Post runs all of its 100 + activities at very low cost to the students: essentially the cost of car mileage and permits. We rely on our supporters to help with the cost of liability insurance, office overhead, gear maintenance and acquisition, training for the adult advisors, and accident insurance
