NIU Outdoor Adventures to host used outdoor gear sale

August 23, 2021

NIU’s Outdoor Adventure program is hosting a used gear sale that allows students and community members to buy used outdoor gear. The sale will be held on Sunday, Sept. 12, 2021, from 1 to 4 p.m. at the NIU Recreation Center located at 325 N. Annie Glidden Rd, DeKalb, IL.

NIU Outdoor Adventures is selling a large selection of equipment at low costs. The bulk of the gear being sold includes cross-country ski equipment as well as ice skates, climbing shoes, backpacks, tents, sleeping bags, standup paddleboards, a variety of paddles and other outdoor gear items. A list of items for sale is posted on the Outdoor Adventure website.

Sale items were previously used by NIU Outdoor Adventures for trips, rentals and workshops. Gear is sold “as is” condition and all sales are final. Proceeds from the sale will be invested in new equipment and benefit future participants.

Outdoor Adventures offers a multitude of health and wellness benefits to individuals and the community. Northern Illinois University has been engaging students and the community in outdoor pursuits through its rental center since 1985. In addition to the year-round rental program, Outdoor Adventures also offers scheduled trips, special events and custom teambuilding opportunities.

For any questions regarding the gear sale please contact the NIU Outdoor Adventure Center by calling 815-753-9423 or emailing [email protected].
