Your Adventure

cross country skis

It's your backyard, so get out and play!

Free Gear Rentals

From a day hike through the Abbey Arboretum, to an extended paddle in the Boundary Waters, or to any other excursion, we can outfit you with all the gear you need for adventure.

One of our biggest concerns in the OLC is that too many students are not enjoying the wonders of our two beautiful campuses. Have you ever taken a hike in the Abbey Arboretum, or found the mystical Lake Sarah at CSB? Our gear will help you get outside.


Are you planning a trip for more than four people? Are you a club or faculty member? You can reserve your gear ahead of time!

Trip Planning

OLC staff are happy to help you with the planning of your outdoor adventures. Our staff is ready to share their knowledge and love of the outdoors.

  • Stop by during regular hours (2-6 pm daily), or call us at 320-363-3435 to rent all the gear you will need.
