ASDT Retreats

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the cancellation of our Retreat Season. We appreciate the endless support as we have moved to focusing on our Rendezvous at this time. We will update this page if we decide to bring our ASDT Retreats back on the event calendar. Thank you!

Here are our most Frequently Asked Questions. If you have one that is not listed, please send us a message below.

If I bring my own gear, will the cost change?

- Unfortunately, no; this gear is provided as part of the retreat. You may bring your own gear if you prefer, but most of the time when participants do, they end up using our gear which would have saved a lot of room when traveling. You only need to bring your personal items. To help prepare, we have a packing list on each retreat page as each location requires different needs.

How many women come by themselves?

- 90 percent of our participants come to our retreats alone. If you are hesitating to join because you would be coming solo, please know that we expect a majority of our participants to be joining by themselves, seeking new friendships. We do have friends sign up together on occasion which is fun to see too!

Will there be a packing list to help me prepare for the trip?

-Yes! On each retreat page, we have a specific packing list that is catered to the location you are joining. Please take a look if you have questions.

What is the average age of the participant?

- Age is just a number to us! We have a wide range of ages of women who attend our retreats which we highly anticipate and welcome. The average ages that attend are 24 to 45; we have had women in their 60's join who enjoy themselves as much as the 20-year-old participants. It really is up to the physical ability level of the guest.

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.


Any cancellation by a participant must be made in writing (via email) 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.

  • We do not issue financial refunds for any Rendezvous or Retreat ticket holders for any reason. We will be offering trip vouchers in credits for your ticket. 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 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 with a recommended minimum coverage of $200,000 USD for each of the categories of cover. We also strongly recommend it covers cancellation, curtailment, personal liability and loss of luggage and personal effects.

  • Credits are valid for the year of the original trip and the next calendar year.
  • All credits must be applied to the new trip booking balance by Dec 31 in the year following the originally booked trip date or your voucher will be voided.
  • Credit may be transferred to another participant. You may find another woman to take your spot. 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.
  • Credits may be used towards the final balance of another trip, applied at 90 days in advance of the trip start date. Credit may only be transferred once. If the credit is applied to another booking which is again cancelled by the Client, the credit is forfeited.


Note: If you have booked a Rendezvous or Retreat that is cancelled due to Force Majeure (including the COVID-19 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, 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.
  3. Receive a full refund.

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.

If the participant is offered a refund but requests an alternative tour of a higher value than that originally booked, then the participant must pay the difference in price.

Where after Retreat 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 refund of unused retreats portions. 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.

Why these companies?

We partner with brands that align with our mission to get more women outside. We are grateful for their support and sponsorship in providing items that most don't have or simply don't have the means to purchase. Providing top quality gear at our retreats allows for women to attend without paying for their own expensive gear. We want to eliminate the excuses we give regarding gear, so our guests can purchase a ticket and focus on enjoying themselves on this incredible adventure.

When women purchase an AndShesDopeToo Retreat, they will be given gear for the duration of the retreat. They are also sent pro deals from the sponsors to start working on their own gear closets. This is a huge added bonus as our guests can use their pro deal ahead of time to buy needed shoes for the Retreat. They can break in their boots and enjoy having a quality item at the retreat.

What is the Gear Provided?

"We work hard day by day, but like you, getting into the backcountry is our passion. Knowing that you’re out there trusting our tents in the harshest weather or dragging our sleeping bags and pads around the globe on your adventures is what keeps our focus and motivation on designing and delivering new and improved product every year."

Gear you will be using on our retreats:

"We’re inspired by and celebrate the desire to explore life with curiosity and passion. We don’t believe that adventure is accessible to few, it’s open to everyone and is found anywhere you have the willingness to look. Some find it summiting lofty peaks in remote ranges, mountain biking twisty singletrack, or travelling to new places near or far. Others find it on their children’s earliest adventures, either on their parent’s back or gently guided as they shoulder their first pack."

Gear you will be using on our retreats:

"At Goal Zero, our products are designed to lift the poorest of poor, and are still extremely relevant to the richest of rich. Think about that for a moment. If we have products that will really do that, those products are a great equalizer in lifting us all to a higher place. After all, we are all here on this earth together, having a human experience.

We can put reliable power into every human hand on this earth, without overwhelming our resources. There is enough for all — so, if not you, who? If not now, when?"

Gear you will be using on our retreats:

"We're a company of users. It's who we are. We're the greatest dreamers about what could be, and the harshest of critics about what exists. Because of this, the creation of Black Diamond is a process that will never end. The company today is more committed than ever, thanks to the many people here in the U.S., at Black Diamond Europe and at Black Diamond Asia whose limitless energy and hands-on involvement have created a promising future for all climbers and skiers worldwide."

Gear you will be using on our retreats:

Spotlight 160 Headlamps, Distance FLZ Trekking Poles

"In a society where speed and stress have taken over, people take less and less time to play and connect with nature. Play is our essence. We create the next generation of gear and experiences that make people live the joy of progression of their sport(s) throughout our unique mindset."

Each participant who joins an AndShesDopeToo Retreat, will receive a promo code for 50% off a pair of Salomon hiking boots. This will help you prepare to tackle the miles we undergo and to ensure your feet are protected on the terrain we explore.

"Since 1984, Sawyer Products has offered the best, most technologically advanced solutions for protection against sun, bugs, water & injuries–everything from first aid kits developed for wilderness use to our newest topical insect repellents that use time-released liposome technology. We’re specifically dedicated to eliminating two of the biggest causes of death in the world: bad water and mosquito bites."

Products you will be using on our retreats:

Mini water filtration systems (you will be able to take these home), Picaridin insect repellent and  Sunscreen SPF 30

"Kodiak Cakes began in 1982 when Penny Clark sent her 8-year-old son into the neighborhood with a red wagon full of paper bags that were filled with her father’s heirloom flapjack mix and simple instructions written on the bags. He returned with an empty wagon and lifelong plans.Though we’ve grown, we’ve remained family-owned and we still make each new product as if we were crafting a delicious family recipe to share with our friends and neighbors."

We love making pancakes with their Buttermilk flapjack mix, It also makes a perfect backcountry pizza!
