2019 Retreat Tickets Available Now

There’s nothing closer to honest, worthwhile therapy than being outside in the wilds of our beautiful world. Pushing our limits mentally, physically, and even spiritually is a life-changing experience. We find this especially true when done with other women who are equally hungry for challenges in the outdoors. Giving ourselves the actual time and focus to strengthen our entire beings can be the very difference we've been looking for!


Unforgettable Experience


"JUST DO IT! Trips like this are memorable, life changing, and a straight up good time. It gives you a chance to slow down, check-in with yourself, be freely and completely yourself, and make connections with other like-minded women. I felt so inspired, empowered, encouraged, and motivated by all the women in the group and by learning how to challenge myself in the art of backpacking. I walked away with an overflowing heart, solidified spirit of adventure, outdoor knowledge, great friends, and a revived appreciation for life in general. I'd highly recommend it to anyone!"

Top Quality Gear


When we first hosted these adventure trips for women, the top reason many were unable to join us was something to the sound of, “I don't have the right equipment to come and can't afford to purchase any" or, "All of my gear is outdated and doesn't fit or work correctly anymore.” That’s why when you purchase an ASDT Retreat, we’ll supply all of the essential gear you need. Tents, sleeping bag/pad, backpack, trekking poles, hydration systems, purifiers, solar kits, food, energy bars, etc. We’ve joined forces with quality brands and partners to ensure the best overall experience in the backcountry. We even offer discounts so you can get the right pair of shoes for the trip too. Our goal is to encourage more women to get outside with confidence, without having to worry about the details.

Delicious Food


"One of my favorite memories is when we were laughing so hard we were crying! Trying to make pizza dough, and feeling so completely happy that we were all doing a great job taking care of ourselves and each other.”

We understand knowing what to eat and how to cook it in the backcountry can be worrisome. Which is why we prepare,plan and pack in some of the most delicious meals you will ever experience. Many people believe you have to eat only dehydrated foods on your excursions and this is simply not true. Let us show you simple ways to enjoy cooking and introduce to you the only way you'll want to eat while backpacking!

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

Would it be possible to carpool with other participants? How can I get their information?

-Yes! We will have a carpool link available for those who want to make any arrangements with other participants. We see this a lot when women fly into a location and want to share a rental car. Many women do this and it makes for a really fun road trip to the arrival location.

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.

What is the difference between the $795 and $895 package?

- The only difference between these two tickets is the timing of purchase. We offer an early bird discount to say thank you to our first set of excited supporters. There is a limited amount of discounted tickets available.

I am interested in the couples retreat. Do I need to purchase a ticket for both myself and partner?

- Yes! Each participant will need their own individual ticket to join a retreat. The tickets listed are not a duo pack for two people.


RETREAT CANCELLATIONS

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 retreat, but unexpected things do happen, so please purchase travel cancellation insurance once you have made your reservation.

GUEST CANCELLATION POLICY

If you cancel your trip, AndShesDopeToo does not offer refunds for any reason. A portion of your payment may be used as credit for another retreat to be taken the next calendar year.

Depending on when you cancel, cancellation penalties may apply.

Fees are determined by the following schedule:

  • If you cancel more than 90 days before your retreat start date, 100% of your payment may be applied to another Retreat.
  • If you cancel 89 – 60 days before your retreat start date, 75% of your payment may be applied to another Retreat. You will forfeit 25% of the price of your retreat.
  • If you cancel 59 – 30 days before your retreat start date, 50% of your payment may be applied to another Retreat. You will forfeit 50% of the price of your retreat.
  • If you cancel 30 days or less before your retreat start date, you will forfeit your entire payment.

Exceptions to our policy cannot be made for any reason. We do not offer credit for a guest arriving late or leaving early.

ASDT RETREAT CANCELLATION POLICY

If AndShesDopeToo must cancel a booked retreat date for any reason, you may transfer your full retreat payment to another retreat, or you may request a refund of your payment to us.

AndShesDopeToo is not responsible for your expenses incurred in preparation for any cancelled retreat, such as airline tickets, loss of work, and/or other costs associated with preparing for your trip.

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!

What to expect

AndShesDopeToo focuses primarily on women’s only events. However, the founders wanted to experience these beautiful locations together and once they did, they knew immediately they wanted to add one couples retreat to the calendar. There really is something special about going into the backcountry with your significant other. You leave all of the noise behind, noise that typically distracts you from spending quality time together. These new retreats are the perfect time to unplug and connect in the most beautiful locations we could imagine. We limit each retreat to five couples and two guides. This allows for numbers to be large enough for a good time, but small enough where we each can have space around our individual camping areas.

Who can attend?

We welcome couples who are over the age of 21 years old and who are in physical shape to carry a 30 to 45 lb pack while hiking up to seven miles a day. Since ASDT is an outdoor women’s collective, we do have a policy for our couples to have at least one participant who is female. If you have any questions about this policy, please send us a message.


What Gear is provided?

For our couples retreats, we will provide backpacking packs, sleeping bags, and sleeping pads. The gear listed above is available for use on the couples backpacking retreats. If you would like to use your gear from home, you absolutely can.
