Outdoor Rental Center

Equipment Rental 

Hours of operation for the Outdoor Rental Center are from 4 - 8 p.m., Monday through Friday. The Outdoor Rental Center is closed on the weekend. Equipment is only available for pick up and return during these times. Daily rentals, week rentals, group rentals and extended rentals are available upon request. Please contact Blake Osborn (see his information on the side of the page) with any questions about those types of rentals. 

How to Rent:

  1. Call the Adventure Center (330-672-7625) or stop by climbing wall office Monday through Friday from 4 - 8 p.m. to reserve your equipment. You must pay in advance to secure a reservation, and it is preferred to give us at least one day's notice to prepare your reservations for quicker service. 
  2. Make your payment over the phone or in person with our Adventure Center Assistant at the climbing wall office. 
  3. For weekend rentals, pick up your rentals Thursday or Friday evening by stopping in the Pro Shop. For non-weekend rentals, pick up your gear the evening before your reservation. 
  4. Check in with Pro Shop staff to return your rented equipment between 4 - 8 p.m. the day after your reservation expires. They will contact Adventure Center staff to come and meet you upstairs. Do not leave equipment at Pro Shop unattended. You will be charged a late fee for late returns.
