The Gear Bank is a community service provided by the Youth Education Program of the Colorado Mountain Club.
The purpose of the Gear Bank is to help underserved youth experience the outdoors.
The Gear Bank houses an inventory of gear necessary for outdoor expeditions, including backpacks, tents, cook sets, sleeping bags and sleeping pads. This gear is available for use by non-profit organizations with youth programs. An application and annual registration fee of $25 is required for use of the Gear Bank.
Through a reservation system and a nominal cost, the Gear Bank allows youth agencies increased access to gear necessary for outdoor-based adventures.
The Youth Education Program (YEP) of the Colorado Mountain Club is able to engage many more youth in the outdoors through the provision of a community Gear Bank.
