Gear Lending Library

Our Gear Lending Library is a unique resource in our community. It provides a diverse range of outdoor gear, from camping equipment to recreational items, all available to borrow at no cost to local individuals.


Whether you’re a family preparing for a weekend adventure or an individual seeking outdoor experiences, the GLL ensures access to the equipment you need. By removing financial barriers, SCYC promotes outdoor exploration, fosters community engagement, and empowers individuals to embark on their own adventures.
