Equipment Store

We understand that when the expedition phase of any award is undertaken, certain items of specialist equipment are required, and that not every young person will have the access or means to buy what is needed. At Kempston we have a range of kit available for hire to Bedfordshire based groups - everything you could need for your expedition. We hire: Camping equipment - waterproof coats & trousers, walking boots, head-torches and fleeces. We are also happy to discuss kit needs with group leaders or young people to ensure you are appropriately equipped and aren´t about to spend a fortune on unneeded items.
