Gear Rental

We realize that for some people, especially those flying to the field school, it can be difficult to acquire all of the items on the gear list for our programs. As a result we offer rentals of a few pieces of gear, listed below. We don’t have a lot of these items, and they are first come, first served. If it is not on this page, we don’t currently rent it.

60 Liter Blue Canoe Barrel – $25/week

These are the large blue barrels we use to keep gear dry on canoe trips.

Small Cooler – $15/week

These are small, plastic coolers that are suitable for use on trips. They are not high-end.

Large Cooler – $20/week

These are standard, large, plastic coolers, suitable for use in camp but too big to bring on trips.

Fancy Small Cooler – $25/week

These are high quality, rotomolded coolers and will keep ice for a week. Size is roughly 20 quarts, a good size for a weeklong trip.

For the coolers and barrels there is a $5 cleaning fee. Get $5 back if you return it clean. The fee is charged up front, like a security deposit

Military-Style Snowshoes: $10/day

These are the US military-surplus snowshoes with magnesium frames and cable lacing. Simple bindings are included in the price.

Jack Mountain Cook Pail System: $30/week

On many courses people bring cookware that is not suited to hanging over a campfire. We usually have an extra set of the 2 quart Jack Mountain pails, although we highly recommend you get your own and use them a few times before your course.

Typos, Etc.
Anything that appears to be an error in spelling or grammar is actually the author’s clever use of the vernacular, and as such is not an error, but rather a carefully placed literary device demonstrating prodigious artistic prowess.
