ASDT specializes in bringing women together in beautiful locations to connect, bond and edify one another at outdoor events and activities led by local trained and certified ladies. We have built a community of women seeking friendship and adventure. Refresh your mind, body, and soul in a loving, ego-free environment at our women’s outdoor adventures.

We gather together as a unique and cultured group of women to enjoy all that is sisterhood in the beautiful outdoors. Our Rendezvous are scheduled on weekends and consist of three days and two nights of camping. During the day, ladies choose between many different types of rewarding outdoor activities. When the sun goes down, we continue to play as we all gather to hear inspirational fireside speakers, shake it out during the Rendezvous disco, and of course strengthen old friendships and make some new, long-lasting friendships. It’s an all-out adventure vacation for women.


Who Attends

We developed an environment that all women will enjoy being a part of. Many times, women want to come to an outdoor adventure weekend, but may feel uncomfortable with their ability level. Here at the ASDT Rendezvous, we encourage everyone from the new outdoor adventure seeker to the seasoned athlete. We’re all about hosting a fun weekend that is not focused on competition. Our participants range from 21 years old to women in their 60’s. This weekend is for anyone who wants to enjoy the outdoors, try new activities, and meet women from all over the country who, too, are seeking adventure. Our culture thrives because we don't focus on the things society uses to separate us. We come together to encourage those who are climbing for the first time, those who are stepping onto a yoga mat for the first time, and those who are professional athletes wanting a break from competition.

Women experience, sometimes for the first time, what a healthy group of empowering women can feel like, when we don't focus on everyone's differences, ability levels, political values, and just focus on being women who want to explore the outdoors and be our beautiful, genuine selves. We invite those who want to share, learn, and explore these beautiful lands without the pressure of trying to keep up or fit in. ASDT Rendezvous allow you to relax and just be you.



What happens at a Rendezvous?

Our Rendezvous are women’s outdoor adventure trips. Each ASDT Rendezvous has a core group of daily outdoor activities we host. Choose from yoga, hiking, mountain biking, trail running, SUP, painting classes at the Creative Corner, Wellness Workshops, and Rock Climbing, Rappelling and Nature Workshops. Except for the rare occasions in which we note otherwise, our activities are open to all ability levels. We want anyone who wishes to try something new to feel empowered and encouraged. See more activity details for our women’s weekend getaway below. The activities are scheduled after the Rendezvous ticket is purchased.

Sometimes it's hard to take time off from the responsibilities of life. We each have our busy schedules, jobs, family, and personal goals that take priority. But what if you could take one day off of work and make it to a weekend retreat — a retreat filled with activities that cater to all and allow you to explore new, majestic destinations?

What does Rendezvous 2.0 mean?

AndShesDopeToo has taken all of the feedback over the years and have opened up an all new Rendezvous in Moab, UT this October. We have read each comment from past participants and feel so proud to be able to create this event that truly captures the desires of our participant. We understand that in order to keep this event affordable, we had to be careful in selecting which amenities to keep, which to improve, and which to add over the course of the 3 days. We want each participant to arrive feeling 100% ready for an adventure packed weekend. Each participant will leave having more confidence in themselves and 200 new friendships from women from all over the country. Rendezvous 2.0 is our way to say Thank you for the years of support. We have added new activities, and re-arranged our schedule to make every minute count while you're here with us. For those who have joined us in the past, you will be glad you came again, and for all of the new participants joining us for the first time, get ready, this is our best Roo yet!


Hiking

Hiking is an activity that is approachable for every ability level. We offer a variety of women’s hiking trips throughout each Rendezvous that are as short as two hours round trip and up to four hours round trip. There are hikes with zero elevation changes, as well as opportunities to complete more intermediate, and even strenuous hikes. This allows participants to choose their time commitments and to have the flexibility to wander the landscape as much or as little as they would like.


Camping

Our tent city is created with our participants in mind. We have a large area at our Rendezvous that is designed for community camping. Grouping our participants together in one place allows for many of us to talk, laugh, and share the warmth from flickering campfires. By sharing a central area, we connect with those we normally wouldn't if we were separated. Our participants appreciate being together and having endless neighbors to chat with! We have portable potties nearby and a short walk to our main event gathering area. We also ensure that camp is close enough to your cars in case you need to leave.


Trail Running

We love offering trail running as an activity for our participants. It’s especially exciting when Amer Sports supplies us with a fleet of Salomon demo shoes of the current styles and sizes for the women to use. This is a huge bonus when you run, to have a shoe right for your foot and someone who can explain why there are different treads for different terrain. Our trail demo runs range from two miles to eight miles.


Yoga

We start and finish each day with a relaxing Vinyasa flow and restore for all to enjoy. We encourage women who would like to participate to bring their yoga mat, beach towel, blanket, or anything they have to lay on the ground to join us. No experience is necessary. Our certified instructors prepare flows suitable to brand new yogis in the crowd. And if you practice yoga regularly, our flow is designed for you to enjoy this time as well.


Mountain Biking

*Requires an additional MTB add on ticket*

Mountain biking can be absolutely intimidating to those who have never tried it. Or, if you have attempted mountain biking previously, you may have been taught incorrectly. This activity is a game changer! Thanks to our MTB Sponsor Fezzari Bicycles, we have a fleet of brand new Mountain bikes available to demo. We offer mini clinics and for those who have never been on a mountain bike but have always wanted to give it a try. We also have trails for those riders who may not need a clinic but just want to get on a Moab single track! We have things for everyone. This activity is only available through an additional ticket. It is not offered to everyone who purchases a Rendezvous ticket, as a lot of preparation and time goes into your safety, and ensuring you are in the correct ability level group. More details on our women’s mountain biking are given to our paid participants.


Creative Corner

We love having a time at camp that allows for participants to be in a relaxed setting, having great conversation getting to know one another. This time isn't just for painting. We open this time up for anyone who is interested in bringing their choice of creativity to the group for fun conversation and laughs! This is a favorite for all!


Wellness Workshops

One of our favorite activities we offer is time to be still and reflect on a pivotal thing in this world — balance. We offer varied workshop topics with our professional certified facilitators who will address comfortable and safe topics for great conversation and exercise. Prepare for moments of connection with other women who are in all levels of life. We encourage participants to use this time to grow together and be in a very positive, loving space.


Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP)

*Requires an additional add on ticket via RVR 2 RVR*

SUP has become a hit over the years. We offer open paddle boarding at our Rendezvous for those women who love to be on the water. We also teach the correct ways to stand and paddle. This is an additional ticket via RvR 2 RvR, where they will take you on the Colorado River and teach you how to ride the river swell in a fun, safe atmosphere. This ticket can be purchased closer to the event date, with a link that is published on the private Facebook group for retreat participants.


Nature Walks & Talks

These are some really fun and informative round tables we hold at each Rendezvous. It is important for you to be familiar with the areas you will explore. We have a highly experienced instructor who leads mini workshops all about the flora and fauna, animals in the area, Leave No Trace, and how to enjoy yourself and respect the natural living things that make this world so beautiful. We are happy to have these popular workshops available for our participants.


Climbing & Rappelling

We have teamed up with Black Diamond to provide the necessary gear for those who are interested in trying out this sport. We will have shoes, harnesses, ropes and chalk on hand. Certified instructors will make sure you have a safe and fun first experience sport climbing and rappelling. We’ll teach you how to respect the area, gear, and others before you just jump on the rocks. Each participant will enjoy a Rock Climbing workshop along with on rock climbing/rappelling.


Camp Cuisine

Adventuring in Moab can work up quite the appetite, and sometimes cooking is the last thing on your mind when you come back to camp. We are proud to have two of our favorite Restaurants join us from our hometown of Ogden to prepare your meals. If you choose to purchase the meal ticket, your breakfasts and lunches will be added in addition to the two dinners that are included in the general admission ticket.
