Gear Rental

We rent out a lot of outdoors gear! How much, you ask? Click the "Inventory" button at the top of the page to browse what we have available and our pricing! Please note that you need to be a member (see the relevant section above) to rent gear and you cannot reserve gear ahead of time. Come into an office hour (see the calendar at the bottom) and we'll hook you up!

You will also need to leave us some form of deposit. This can be

  • a credit card imprint that we will keep on file until your membership expires. We won't charge anything to it upfront! (Preferred)
  • a one-time check for the total replacement value of the gear that we will return to you when you return the gear
  • a perma-cheque (undated, made out for $400.01) that we will keep on file until your membership expires

The maximum time that you can rent is 4 weeks unless you are given explicit permission from or The maximum per person is three of the same kind of item, one tent, and two crash pads.

If you return your gear late, late fees are charged daily at a rate of 1/7 of the weekly rental price. This means if you are a week late returning your gear, you essentially just paid another week of rental fees.

Our office accepts cash and debit to pay rental and late fees!

The MOC owns and operates a house in the town of Prevost, about an hour north of Montreal! For over sixty years, the MOC has offered its members a chance to escape the stresses of the city by staying at our House in the Laurentian town of Prevost! Located 45 minutes north of Montreal by car, the House is a great place to relax and spend the night after a day of hiking, climbing, skiing, shinny, or swimming! The house is heated and has a two stove kitchen, four bedrooms, and two bathrooms.
