OUTDOOR PURSUITS

Outdoor Pursuits consists of a gear rental program. A variety of camping, backpacking, and rock climbing gear is available for rent by reservation only.

Gear Rental Information

General Information
The Outdoor Pursuits rental program exists to provide an opportunity for students, faculty/staff, and Sarkeys Fitness Center members to explore the outdoors in a convenient and affordable way. Equipment needed for basic camping and backpacking is available for a nominal rental fee.

Why Rent?
If you are planning an outdoor adventure and need some extra gear, we may have the equipment you need! Many individuals lack storage space for camping gear and find that renting equipment as needed is a better option. Other students choose to rent specialized backpacking gear, such as stoves or packs, to see if they would like to invest in similar items.

Rental Procedures
Equipment is available by reservation on a first come, first served basis and is rented for daily, weekend and weekly rental periods. Depending on demand, pre-payment may be required in order to secure the reservation. Equipment may be picked up and returned at the Sarkeys Fitness Center front desk. Please be prepared to show your valid Sooner Card and pay rental fees in full (if not paid at the time of reservation) in order to pick up all equipment.

For equipment reservations, additional information, or questions, please contact Fitness and Recreation at (405) 325-3053 or email fitrec@ou.edu. Before you rent, please read our Outdoor Pursuits Rental Policy.
