POST Desert School - Freshmen Only
POST: Outdoor Education Club at Garfield High School
March 13th, 7:00 PM - FRESHMAN DESERT SCHOOL information meeting
How does a five-day vacation under the blazing hot sun sound? Well, mix that together with kayaking, hiking, rock climbing, and mountain biking and you have Desert School. Located in the picturesque Sun Lakes State Park in Eastern Washington, Desert School is school away from school. But instead of tiny classrooms and lectures, you learn by exploring and experiencing your environment.
Desert school is for freshman campers only and is a great way to meet new people and hang out with your buddies while trying new things. All participants sleep in (non-coed) cabins and are broken into 6 coed groups, all headed by experienced staff members. Groups participate in two activities each day, from rock climbing to hiking, mountain biking to swimming.
Come to this meeting to learn more about Post's most popular trip of the year (it takes place in May) and take advantage of the ONLY opportunity to get camper forms! Campers and their parents/families are welcome.
The meeting will be held in the Quincy Jones Performing Arts Center at 7:00 PM
