Outdoor Adventure Program Silent Auction and Summer Offerings

On Saturday, Apr. 13, the Michigan Tech Athletics Department, Recreation Department, and Outdoor Adventure Program (OAP) will be hosting a silent auction for some of their used and surplus gear. The auction will be held in the concourse of the SDC ice arena. The silent auction will run from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. All bids are final, with winners responsible for payment and pickup the day of the auction. 

According to their website, items being auctioned include “Key Log synthetic rolling logs, cross country skis and boots, snowshoes, athletic gear, and other items.”All items start at $50 or more. People who want to sell their own used equipment can do so through the OAP auction. The deadline to register those items is Friday, Apr. 12 at noon. The OAP will be taking $10 from each sale for consignment items. Additional information about the silent auction can be found at

Additionally, the OAP will be operating all summer for equipment rental needs. At the entrance of the Tech Trails, the OAP offers bikes, kayaks, backpacks, and other equipment for a multitude of outdoor activities. Recent Michigan Tech graduate, Seamus Lux, said, “I rented a canoe last summer to go fishing with some friends and it was really a blast. It really opened up the possibilities that the Keweenaw Peninsula provides.” The OAP also operates a high ropes course open to the public. Dates for the course vary throughout the summer. For more information on how to get involved with the OAP or what they have to offer, check out their website at, or give them a call at 906-487-2290.
