Adventure Leadership

Our Gear Rental Program is currently in storage due to the construction of the new residence halls on Elbel Field. We plan to re-open our temporary facility after Spring Break. If you are a U‑M group, paying by short code, and need gear for at least 10 people, please email us at AdventureLeadership@umich.edu.

Planning an outdoor adventure doesn’t have to include an expensive trip to the nearest outfitter. Just rent from us instead! We offer inspected and dependable equipment like tents, lanterns, kayaks, canoes, skis and lots more. We even have everything you need to throw a great outdoor party.
