Do you want to get out and explore on your own, or take your family out for an outdoor excursion, but lack the gear to do so? Mason Recreation can help!

Outdoor Adventures offers a full line of rental equipment. Whether you need a sleeping bag, tent, trekking poles, camp stove, or lantern, they can help. Ask about package discounts and long-term rental discounts.

All rentals are on a first-come, first-serve basis, and reservations are required in order to insure equipment is ready for pickup.

The gear rental center is located at Skyline Fitness Center on the Fairfax Campus, and open (upon request) on Thursday, Friday, and Monday from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.
