It should be noted that group gear and technical equipment (except bike rentals) are covered in the cost of your TREK program (tents, stoves, canoes, personal floatation devices…etc) - but individual gear is not (sleeping bags, clothing…etc).
Due to the number of TREK participants, TREKkies must provide their own personal equipment. We encourage you to view the packing list for the trip(s) you are interested in and be aware of the "must have" items you'll need to be safe and comfortable during TREK.
On a first come first served basis, limited gear is available to borrow from the Department of Student Life at no cost. Priority is given to students receiving financial support to attend TREK. If you are not receiving financial support for TREK, you may still request rental equipment, but know that supplies are limited.
Please Note: Students must have proper equipment when they arrive at TREK check-in. TREK Leaders will review your packs upon arrival and any missing items will have to be purchased from local retailers prior to departure for your trip. Purchasing listed items at home will avoid additional expense and stress of trying to obtain these items in the limited time available before trips depart.
