One of the goals of CANOE is to encourage students to get active and allow greater access to outdoor adventures. Trying to go outdoors and plan a trip may be fun but gear is something that is necessary, and not all of us may have the right equipment. CANOE is here to save the day!! CANOE lends out gear to all Carleton adventure seekers.

To request a gear loan, fill out the form on this page or email our gear managers Madeleine Parr ( or Annabel Cohen ( They also are happy to answer any questions you may have about the gear loaning process. In the average academic year, we loan tents, sleeping bags, sleeping pads, stoves, tarps, backpacks, cooking utensils, life vests and paddles. We DO NOT loan canoes or climbing gear. Please get your gear requests in by 5pm on the Thursday before the weekend!

Loaning gear is FREE! We just ask that you ensure the gear is returned in good condition. Accidents happen, and we’ll address it on a case-by-case basis.
