Trip Planning

Have ever wanted to go on a trip, but just not had the resources? The ORC is the place to visit! The Outdoor Recreation staff can help you plan your own trip by renting you equipment, giving suggestions and advice, and providing helpful resources. If you want to backpack, kayak, white water raft, or just go on a day hike, the ORC can help.

Equipment Rentals

The ORC has a variety of camping and outdoor equipment available for rental at very low costs. Tents range from small two person backing packing tents to large six person car camping tents. Tents are not the only thing in stock, so if you need a stove, cooking equipment, sleeping pads, sleeping bags, lanterns, backpacks, headlamps, flashlights, mess kits, or anything else, come visit the staff in the ORC.
