How many women come by themselves?
More than half of the participants come by themselves. If you are feeling uneasy because you don't know anyone, please rest assured that you will have an incredible experience whether you are solo or coming with friends. The Rendezvous create a welcoming space to explore and adventure with other outdoor-loving women.
What is the average age of the participant?
We have a range of ages from 21 to 66. The average age is 24 to 39. The magic of ASDT events is how adventure connects participants on a soulful level, regardless of age.
Can I bring my dog?
As much as we love our fur babies, they will need to sit this weekend out. If we allowed for participants to bring their dogs, it would turn into a dog camp! Please be respectful of this. If you bring your dog, we will dishearteningly turn you away.
Which airport should I fly into?
- Salt Lake City, UT : is a 2.5 hour drive to Garden City, UT
Will someone be there to pick me up at the airport or do I need to arrange my own transportation to our meeting point?
Please arrange your own transportation to the Rendezvous. Please see the below answer for connecting with other participants for carpooling. Many carpools come to and from the airports. It isn't un common to link up and rent a car together or join the carpool link and arrange to meet.
Would it be possible to carpool with other participants? How can I get their information?
Yes! If you are interested in carpooling, we will have a link. However, due to the many changes of our Health Dept, we encourage you to double check with your driver and where everyone will be traveling from to ensure the safety of you and others.

If you purchase the early check in add on, Plan on being with us Thursday evening starting at 6:00 PM , if not, regular check in is Friday at 8 AM and the Rendezvous will conclude 12PM on Sunday.
How far will our cars be from camp?
Depending on where you park your car, there are two designated areas to park. Because of the small space, we will be triple parking cars which means you won't have access to leave as much as you would like. We are right in Garden City which means you may bring your bike to get around town and back to camp. We highly recommend you doing so. We will have vehicles available to take participants to the off site activities.
Can I bring an RV, Trailer, or Tent trailer?
In past years we have let participants bring these rigs. However, do to the small parking space, we are not having those in 2021. Majority of participants will be camping in tents on platforms. If you are wanting to sleep in your van, or truck, we highly recommend roof top tents. If you would like to contact our Rendezvous Director, please send an email to Jenn@andshesdopetoo.com for availability. We will designate a handful for those.
Will there be bathrooms and showers available?
Yes! Our basecamp has all new remodeled indoor bathrooms and shower stalls. Just because we are all playing in the outdoors, doesn't mean you have to smell like them if you don't want. There are plenty of hot showers and flushing toilets for use all weekend long.
Is there a place for power?
Yes! In our lodge, there are plenty of outlets to use at your own risk. If it's open, you may use it.
Can I bring my own SUP if I have one?
Yes! You may absolutely bring your own SUP/Kayak to use all weekend. We have our own beach and access to the lake all weekend.
What will the tent city be like?
In the past we have had large fields for everyone to sleep at for our Tent City. For 2021, we will have participants in smaller groups spread throughout the entire basecamp. There are plenty of trees and shade for not just privacy but hammocks to hang. Each area will have a table to use, you may bring your own if you would like.
