Field Operations Equipment Warehouse
“I’m hard-pressed to think of another college program that has a fleet of boats as nice as ours,” said Outward Bound instructor Nathan Stayrook Hobbs ’09.
Once a lumberyard, the Equipment Warehouse now opens its huge bay doors to reveal a world of adventure.
Prescott College’s 2,800 square-foot Equipment Warehouse is a storage facility housing the College’s field equipment and a staging area for student forays into the wilderness. Staffers regularly rotate the state-of-the-art equipment and inventory to provide students with access to the latest in adventure gear. The Equipment Warehouse staff provides equipment for camping, backpacking, rock climbing, mountaineering, ski touring, avalanche forecasting, whitewater kayaking and rafting, sea kayaking, and canoeing.
Housed in the same building, the Field Operations Department keeps track of the state and government permits often necessary for the many forays that Prescott College’s field-based programs make into Southwest wildlands.
