We can't wait to meet new faces and see familiar friends from previous years. We have been improving the experience each time and are always striving to make sure we are doing our very best to make your Rendezvous weekend as enjoyable as possible. Part of the ASDT culture is to make our experiences available for all, and to keep them affordable, so you can return and try new locations. We understand that by keeping these events affordable, every amenity you are wishing to have while camping may not be available, although we do have a ton here at our new location! We will do our very best to make sure you have as many needs possible to keep you smiling.

Where is Camp Rendezvous?

ACT Campground 1536 Mill Creek Drive Moab, Utah 84532

We are happy to be re-locating to a more in town campground this 2022 year. In the past, we have had the pleasure to be far remote in Canyonlands National Park. This coming year, we will be right in Moab opening up new trails and the option to many more activities. We're fortunate to have ACT Campground all to ourselves making it our very own ASDT Roo venue. The great thing about this venue is it's central to multiple MTB, Hiking, Trail running and down the road from the Colorado River and off road vehicles runs. This campground offers amenities to create a very pleasant camping experience for all.

ACT Campground has showers, flushing toilets, fresh water, power, and a community kitchen for all to use. Even though we will be camping, we will have all of the necessary things for comfort.

Activities

When we first started the Rendezvous, we wanted to create an atmosphere that was welcoming to all ability levels. This is done by having activities that all levels and ages can enjoy and feel encouraged while joining, rather than discouraged and frustrated. AndShesDopeToo believes in creating the best first experience possible when trying a new outdoor sport. If you enjoy yourself the first time, you're more than likely to step into that space a second time. We will be taking advantage of the beautiful land we have for our use and having the majority of activities right here at Camp Rendezvous. We will be offering a wide range of round the clock activities that are open for anyone to join whether you begin at the start, or jump in half way, and activities that will need for you to sign up prior. These specific activities will have scheduled times all throughout camp.

Non Sign up Activities

Join in at any time, spaces for all!

Yoga

Enjoy a wake up morning flow to start your day off right, and end the evening with a relaxing restore to give your body an enjoyable stretch before you conclude the day and prepare for another round the following day!

COVID-19 FAQ's

What if the date you choose for the official postponed event, doesn’t work for me?

We understand that our new date might not work for you. Which is why we have given multiple options to be made available for current ticket holders found HERE, If none of these work, please email Jenn@andshesdopetoo.com

Can I sell my spot to someone who can make the new date?

Yes! We encourage you to reach out and sell your ticket to someone who can attend if you are passed the date we have listed to issue refunds. All we would need is the information from the new participant and email once you sold them their ticket. We will not be responsible for collecting funds for you. The new participant also needs to be aware that they are passed the date of refunds and will need to be aware of our policy.

I need my money ASAP, why aren’t you releasing my funds in this critical time?

We understand the fear and uncomfortable situation COVID-19 has left everyone in. Please understand we aren’t making this choice because we are greedy or wanting to hold on to your money for the sake of it. We are following our policy we have created to protect our small business to allow us to create events after the emotional affects. We understand to some, this might not make sense as financial times are serious and every penny counts. Which again, is why we have a policy to protect ourselves as a small business. Funds have already been allocated to vendors and creating this event. We aren’t the only ones who make decisions in this industry, everyone is waiting on the unknown.

I haven’t been receiving your emails, where can I find them?

Some of you have emailed us saying you haven’t heard anything from us since you purchased your ticket. We apologize that you have felt in the dark. However, every person who purchased a ticket is automatically sent to our event email list for our bulk announcements. Some of your emails will get flagged as junk or spam. I would highly suggest you checking your folder for these. You can also find the majority of the information from the emails on our event page.

  • Water- We have multiple fresh water spigots in our camp that you are able to use anytime. I would suggest bringing jugs to fill up at camp and leave at your tent. We will be having a Yeti hydration station at camp that will be filled with water through out the weekend.
  • Fire- We have fire rings that are available for you to use at anytime in the common area. Each morning we will have them lit. You are able to bring your own personal fire ring as long as it is above ground and in it's own bowl. Please prepare and bring your own firewood if you need for your personal needs. Remember, morning activities come quickly and we have your dinners covered! We encourage community, please know all participants are invited to make a friend and pull up a chair if you see a fire going.
  • Wind- You can never predict the weather in the desert. It can be completely blue skies one minute and the next, heavy wind/rain storm. Good thing is, it never lasts long. We have had some pretty intense micro bursts come through camp. Those 5 min of wind can do some damage. If you notice the wind picking up, just know it may get extremely windy! Close up your tent windows and door every time you're going to head to an off site activity. Please keep track of your garbage and be considerate if wind came through, what items would blow away. Have your name on important gear in case it blows away from your tent. We encourage you to make sure EVERYTHING is staked down...bring extra stakes in case the wind bends them.
  • Tables- We will have a community area with all of the tables gathered in one location. If you are wanting to bring a small camping table to keep at your tent, you are free to do so. Otherwise, there won't be tables in Tent city.
  • Bathrooms- We will have bathrooms at camp that flushing toilets in each of them. Please be courteous as they do back up.
  • Showers- We will have 3 showers on site for you to use as part of your Rendezvous ticket. We will keep you updated if there is a limit on the number you can take and also a time limit due to the high capacity of our event. These are located in the restrooms. Please bring your own towel and shower shoes to wear if you like. There are lights during the evening if you wish to shower in the PM.

ASDT CANCELLATION POLICY FOR ALL RENDEZVOUS AND RETREATS

It is your responsibility to read and understand our cancellation policy before making a reservation. Naturally, no one books with the intention of cancelling or postponing their Rendezvous trip, but unexpected things do happen, and we want all of our participants to be aware of our policies before making a purchase.


CANCELLATION OF A TRIP BY THE PARTICIPANT

Any cancellation by a participant must be made in writing (via email) to Jenn@andshesdopetoo.com and be acknowledged by ASDT in writing (via email). Immediately after written confirmation of cancellation the spot on the trip will be released and not guaranteed to be available for re-booking.

If you fail to communicate your absence, become a no show for the event, you forfeit your ticket entirely and are not able to use it for future events.
 
REFUNDS
  • We do not issue financial refunds for any Rendezvous or Retreat ticket holders for any reason. It is up to you to purchase trip insurance to cover any losses of flights, rental cars, travel expenses, loss of income, etc.
TRAVEL INSURANCE

  • Travel insurance is recommended for all our participants and should be taken out at the time of booking. Your travel insurance should provide cover against personal accident, death, medical expenses and emergency repatriation. We also strongly recommend it covers cancellation, curtailment, personal liability and loss of luggage and personal effects.

TRIP DATE TRANSFERS
  • If you find yourself needing to transfer your ticket because the date no longer works for you, there will be a $45 non-refundable transfer fee each time.
  • All credits must be applied by Dec 31 in the year following the originally booked trip date or your ticket will be voided.
  • You may find another woman to take your spot. Original Trip date may be transferred to another participant no more than 21 days before time of event as headcounts will already be turned in for logistics. She pays you directly and assumes responsibility for any outstanding balance payments on said ticket. The replacement participant must be approved to join the trip by ASDT.
  • Tickets may only be transferred once. If the credit is applied to another booking which is again cancelled by the Client, the credit is forfeited entirely.

CANCELLATION OF AN EVENT BY ANDSHE’SDOPETOO

Note: If you have booked a Rendezvous or Retreat that is cancelled due to Force Majeure (including the COVID-19 pandemic or any pandemic) you will receive a full 100% credit to use towards an alternative event with the same value with a date in the current or next calendar year. This travel credit will be automatically applied to your reservation. No financial refunds will be issued for any reason.

ASDT reserves the right to cancel any trip for any reason, but will rarely cancel a Rendezvous or Retreat less than 90 days before the event date except for Force Majeure, unusual or unforeseen circumstances outside the ASDT’S control. We may cancel a trip at any time prior to the event if, due to terrorism, natural disasters, Forced mandates of outside tourism, political instability, health pandemics, or other external events it is not viable for us to operate the planned itinerary. In circumstances where the cancellation is due to external events outside our reasonable control refunds will be less any unrecoverable costs.

When an event is cancelled by ASDT before the date of said event for any reason other than Force Majeure or the fault of the participant, the participant can either:

  1. Take a substitute Rendezvous or Retreat of equivalent price if ASDT is able and willing to offer such a substitute
  2. Take a substitute Rendezvous or Retreat of lower price if ASDT is able and willing to offer one and to use the remaining balance as credit to another trip

ASDT is not responsible for any incidental expenses or consequential losses that the participant may have incurred as a result of the booking such as visas, vaccinations, non-refundable flights or rail, non-refundable car rentals or other fees, loss of earnings, or loss of enjoyment, etc.

Where after ASDT Event begins, a significant element of the trip contracted for cannot be provided, ASDT will make suitable alternative arrangements for the continuation of the Retreat. If it is not possible to provide a suitable alternative or the participant reasonably rejects any suitable alternatives, ASDT will provide the participant a voucher of the amount of that specific activity on designated trip, to be used for future ASDT events. Significant alterations do not include the substitution of a car/flight, modification of itineraries, change in cabin category or hotel accommodation.

*ASDT Official INC, has the right to change this policy at any time, for any reason. We will send out a notice each time a change has been made*
Updated 9/7/2021

It is your responsibility to read and understand our cancellation policy before making a reservation. Naturally, no one books with the intention of cancelling or postponing their Rendezvous trip, but unexpected things do happen, and we want all of our participants to be aware of our policies before making a purchase.

Each participant is responsible for their own food during the weekend. There is an indoor and outdoor community kitchen available to use.

We have taken multiple surveys and the majorty vote is that this is some of our participants favorite way to drive to the activities. This is a great way to get to know new faces and enjoy ones company on the drive to the different locations. Please be prepared to join in our carpool host cars. We also are okay if you choose to drive your own vehicle and follow behind.
