Gear To Kickstart Your Weekend Adventure

You don’t need to sign up for the Gap Experience to get your fill of the great outdoors. The Gap program can lend a hand – or a tent – when you take your own adventure. The program’s Gear Garage provides St. Norbert community members with some of the necessary tools to get out and explore, such as tents, backpacks, camp stoves and more.

To reserve items, email the Gear Garage at and put in a request for the gear you would like to rent or borrow. Pick-up and drop-off hours for equipment are typically 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Fridays and 3:30 to 5 p.m. Mondays. If those times do not work, contact Peyton Going at to make alternative arrangements. 

Before renting any gear, make sure to read the pricing chart, rental guidelines and damage policy. Please reserve your equipment early to ensure that we have it in stock for your upcoming adventure.
