Hanscom AFB Outdoor Recreation is a four-season shop. In the spring, summer and early fall we rent a wide variety of boating equipment, camping equipment, party equipment & sports equipment, most on a daily, weekly and weekend basis. In the fall and winter, we offer ski, snowboard and other winter equipment for rent at discounted rates; a fitting, tuning & wax service for skis & snowboards; winter clothing & accessories for purchase and more. Year round we offer an RV storage lot for boats, trailers & campers, table & chair rentals and propane refills.
Prices and availability are subject to change without notice.
Most items may be rented for a day, week or weekend. One-day rental equipment is due back 24 hours from the time of pickup. A late fee (equivalent to one-day rental) will be charged for equipment not returned on time. Weekly rentals must be returned by noon, seven days after pickup. Weekend rentals begin on Friday and are due back by noon on the following Monday. Outdoor Recreation reserves the right to keep your deposit for failure to return equipment clean and damage-free.
A 48-hour cancellation notice is required for all reserved equipment for a full refund. Prepayments can be made no more than 7 days in advance. Other terms and restrictions may apply; inquire in store.
