ASDT specializes in bringing women together multiple times of the year, in beautiful locations to connect, bond and edify one another in outdoor events & activities lead by local trained & certified ladies to help refresh Mind, Body, and Soul, in a loving ego free environment. This is how we have built a community of women seeking friendship, adventure & sisterhood.

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 3 days and 2 nights of camping. During the day, Ladies get to choose between many different types of rewarding outdoor activities. And when the sun goes we continue to play, as we all gather to listen to inspirational fireside speakers, shake it out during the Rendezvous Disco, and of course strengthen some old as well as make some new, long-lasting friendships.


Who Attends

We wanted to create an environment that all will enjoy being apart of. Many times, women want to come to an outdoor adventure weekend but may feel uncomfortable at the ability level activities are offered. Here at the Rendezvous, we encourage the new outdoor adventure seeker all the way to the seasoned athlete that is looking for a fun weekend not focused on competition. Our participants who attend are at least over the age of 21yrs old and bring women into their 60's. This weekend is for all who want to enjoy the outdoors, try new activities and meet women from all over the country who are like minded. 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 competing.

Women experience 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 us being women wanting to explore the outdoors and being our beautiful genuine selves. We invite those who want to share and learn and straight up explore these beautiful lands without the pressure of trying to keep up, fit in, and just be you!



What happens at a Rendezvous?

Sometimes it's hard to take a lot of 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 filled with activities that cater to all and bring it to destinations that we all love exploring? Each Rendezvous has a core group of daily outdoor activities we host, from Yoga, Hiking, Mountain Biking, Trail Running, SUP, Creative Corner Wellness Workshops and Slacklining. If you choose to join any of these activities, we have all ability levels join unless it's specific to an intermediate participant. We want anyone who wishes to try something new feel empowered and not ever discouraged. Want to know more about these activities and what our weekend looks like?


Hiking

The great benefit about hiking is that it's truly an activity for every ability. There are hikes that have zero elevation all the way to intermediate and strenuous. We offer a variety of hikes throughout each Rendezvous that are as short as 2 hrs round trip all the way to 4 hrs round trip. This allows for participants to choose their time commitments and the flexibility to get in 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. Having all of our participants together in one place allows for many of us to talk and laugh and share campfires with those who we normally wouldn't if we were separated. We make sure that camp is close enough to your cars in case you need to leave, we have portable potties near by and a short walk to our main event gathering area. Our participants really enjoy being all together and having endless neighbors to chat with!


Trail Running

We love having trail running as one of our activities for our participants. Especially when Amer Sports supplies us with a fleet of Salomon Demo shoes of all 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 are as short as 2 miles round trip for those who have never tried trail running, and runs as long as 8 miles for those ladies who would like a little more.


Yoga

We start and finish each day with a relaxing vinyasaflow and restore for all to enjoy. We encourage women who would like to participate to bring their yoga mat, beach towel, blanket, anything they have to lay on the ground to be able to join. You don't need to have experience to participate since our certified instructors prepare flows knowing we may have brand new yogis in the crowd but ensures that those who use yoga for a daily practice enjoy this time as well.


Mountain Biking

Mountain biking can absolutely be intimidating to those who have never tried it. Or, if you have, you might have experienced your first time with someone who never taught you the correct way. This is a game changer! We offer mini clinics and workshops for those who have never been on a 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 Moab single track! We have things for everyone. This activity is only available through an additional ticket. It is not offered to every one who purchases a Rendezvous ticket since a lot of preparation and time goes into your safety, and making sure you are in the correct ability level. More details on Mountain biking are given to our paid participants.


Creative Corner

We have loved having a time at camp that allows for participants to be in a relax setting either painting mandalas or enjoying time with our professional artist friend Ericka, owner of pARTy Mobile, who will lead you in a step by step instruction class. 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 the most important thing in this world, balance. We offer many different topics of workshops with our professional certified facilitators who will address comfortable and safe topics for great conversation and exercise. Prepare to have these moments connecting with other women who are in all levels of life, but use this time to grow together and be in a very positive loving space.


SUP

Stand Up Paddleboarding has really gotten popular over the years. But did you know there is a correct and in correct way to stand, and paddle? We offer open paddle boarding at our Rendezvous for those women who love to be on the water. In some locations like Moab, this is an additional ticket via RvR 2 RvR, where they will take you on the Colorado and teach you how to ride the river swell in a fun safe atmosphere.


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 be exploring. 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

We are happy to have this sport available at our Moab Roo . However, knowing how to respect the area, gear, and others before you just jump on rocks is something we highly encourage. We have teamed up with Black Diamond to make sure we have all the gear available for those who are interested in trying out this sport. We will have shoes, harness's, crash pads and belaying devices on hand and certified instructors to make sure you have a safe and fun first experience to bouldering, sport climbing and rappelling.
