Reed Outing Club
The Reed Backpack Coop is located in the basement of ODB, across the quad from the steps of Commons. Reed Students, Faculty and Staff can all rent gear from the Coop. The Coop is also an area for people interested in the outdoors to hang out and be social. The coop has a large room that is good for pre-trip meetings, watching films, and clinics. The Coop has a TV and a few videos about outdoor activities such as telemark skiing, boating and climbing.
