Basic Adventure Rental Break Fees

The gear can be checked out from the Thursday prior to the break starting at 12pm NOON, and are due back Monday following the break by 12pm NOON. First come, first served, there are no reservations. This is an extended service to allow the gear to be rented out for a longer period of time than our normal weekend rentals. The prices listed below are the fees to rent each piece of gear. Deposits are still charged. Upon return of the gear it will be assessed, if no damage, wetness, or number mismatch, the deposit will be returned in full. Normal cleaning fee will not be charge (similar to the premium gear). All other gear uses its normal rental prices. For questions please contact Sasha Griffith at griff2sf@jmu.edu.

Prices are based on the week long breaks (Ex: Thanksgiving Break, Spring Break, a week long May Break Trip):

    • Tents (Basic Alps 2 or 4 person tent) $12
    • Sleeping Bags (Basic 20 degree) $6
    • Sleeping Pad (Basic black foam) $3
