GEAR BANK

The main goal of the Outdoor Program is to get more kids, families, and adults outdoors. One of the most common barriers to getting people outdoors is a lack of quality equipment. The Outdoor Gear Bank was created to overcome this obstacle so that the community can choose from a wide variety of gear to “check out”. We are the only organization on Bainbridge Island offers this service to its residents. The storage container for the gear is located at our main office at Strawberry Hill Park and includes the following items:
