The Outdoor Adventure Center (OAC) is the headquarters for your next adventure with UCF. We want to get you back into the wilderness with contactless gear rentals for all current UCF students.

Gear rental is available by reservation only at this time – the OAC is not open to patrons.
Please see the details below and call 407-823-2408 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve gear. All patrons must wear a face covering to pick up and drop off gear – you will not be allowed to enter the building or interact with staff without it!

Our backpacks offer a lot of adjustable belts and straps, please check out this video or ask an OAC staff for assistance with fitting!
We offer sleeping bags in 0°, 20°, 35°, and 55°. All temperature ratings are the same price. Our sleeping pads are all the same style - they are intended to insulate you from the ground, but may not provide as much comfort as an inflatable mattress.
The best way to decide which bag you need is to check the forecast for the place you are adventuring. You should pick a sleeping bag with a lower temperature rating than the lowest nighttime temperature you expect where you plan to camp.
We have a variety of brands and sizes. You can choose the size and brand when you pick up your reserved gear.
Our stove rentals do not include fuel. All of our rental stoves are Coleman brand and utilize propane fuel. Fuel canisters can be purchased at most major grocery stores.
All fin rentals come with booties. We have a variety of men's and women's sizes for wetsuits, fins, and booties. If you rent more than one item, we will provide a mesh carrying bag for your gear free of charge.
All of our rental SUPs are inflatable and come with a carrying case and air pump for inflation. This style of SUP is easy to store and can be transported in the backseat or trunk of a vehicle. Outdoor Adventure staff will instruct renters about how to properly inflate, delate, and store the SUP at the time of pick up.
SUP rentals include a PFD and a paddle.

All renters must read and complete the Gear Rental Agreement before reserving gear. Please call the OAC at 407-823-2408 or email email@example.com to select your gear and complete your reservation – you will determine your pick up and drop off time at that point.
You are responsible for returning gear under the supervision of OAC Staff; please do not leave your gear outside the building. We understand that this is a challenging time, so all late/damaged/missing gear fees will be assessed on a case-by-case basis.
We’ve increased our cleaning procedures for all gear to help protect our community! All gear will be cleaned, disinfected, and allowed to rest for 72 hours between rental periods. The CDC has recommended this down time to prevent the spread of communicable diseases.
If you are unable to pick up your gear during this time or have any further questions, please let us know.
