For your next group or individual outing, the Recreation and Wellness Center (Rec Center) will do all the planning; they can even provide the gear!
The Rec Center offers a variety of sporting goods for rent at no charge.
These item include snowboard equipment, skiing gear, rockclimbing equipment, etc.
“The rental process is very easy and pretty quick,” said Rec Center employee Stephanie Lasater.
Rentals are available to students, faculty, staff and Rec Center members.
“One person can rent two of any package or item max. As in one for themselves and one for someone else,” added Lasater.
Rec Center plans custom outdoor trips and will do all the organizational work to get your group ready for its next big trip.
Trips can be planned for groups of any size.
Registration for all trips and programs occur in person at the Rec Center.
For the best and most current information and availability, check in person.
All trips and rentals are available to anyone 18 and over, unless otherwise noted.
Trip costs vary based on affiliation with the university. Students and SRWC members pay the lowest costs possible.
According to the Adventure Guide, all trips include transportation, most meals, qualified leadership, activity instruction, all fees, and specialized equipment as needed.
Some trips are specified as “family outings.” In these cases, members of the community, 15 years of age and older, are welcome to attend.
“Taking your group on an outing is a great opportunity for community building and leadership development. CSUSB Outdoors can provide trained student leaders, instructional equipment, transportation, and logistic planning,” according to the Adventure Guide.
If you would like to plan your own excursion Outdoors can help with gear you may need.
“CSUSB Outdoors offers a comprehensive selection of camping, backpacking, snowboarding, kayaking, surfing, and climbing equipment and gear for rent to members of the CSUSB Community for low prices,” according to the Adventure Guide.
The Adventure Guide said rental shop hours are Monday – Thursday, from 1:30 p.m. to 6 p.m., Friday 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
The shop is closed on Saturday and Sunday. The rental shop is located on campus in the SRWC and can be reached at (909) 537-CAMP.
“Equipment returns are accepted 7 days a week until one hour before the SRWC closes,” according to the Adventure Guide.
“Allow time if you have a large group as it does take a little time to individually process each persons paperwork, but its not too bad,” said Lasater.
“Allow between 10 and 30 minutes for fittings depending on what you are renting and group size,” added Lasater.
