We can't wait to meet new faces and see familiar friends from previous years. We have been improving the experience each time and are always striving to make sure we are doing our very best to make your Rendezvous weekend as enjoyable as possible. Part of the ASDT culture is to make our experiences available for all, and to keep them affordable, so you can return and try new locations. We understand that by keeping these events affordable, every amenity you are wishing to have while camping may not be available, although we do have a ton here at our new location! We will do our very best to make sure you have as many needs possible to keep you smiling.


Now that I purchased my ticket, what next?

Step 1:

Your first step in staying connected to our most updated information would be to join our Facebook Participant group: "ASDT Rendezvous Participant Group" Please click the link below, which will direct you to our personal private page. Ask to join, and make sure you give the name you used when purchasing your ticket, or leave a comment with the name of your friend who purchased your ticket as they are on the master list. This will help us verify you are a participant. We will then approve your request. Some of you may not be on Facebook, and that is okay! We post all the needed information you will need on this page, our Facebook group is filled with fun dialogue and conversations between you, other participants, ASDT's Directors and the incredible Roo Crew that you will come to love and get to know.

Step 2:

Next, please fill out the participant tee survey for us to ensure you have the correct size shirt. These are relaxed fit and true to size. They are breathable and athletic polyester. We are excited to show you this year's design as we get closer to Roo weekend. If you purchased a ticket for a friend, when they fill out their survey, please have them put your name in the designated comment space to make sure she is accounted for. The only names we have, are the individual person who purchased your ticket.

Step 3:

Next, please take a moment and fill out our participant survey to help us better assist you. This will give our crew a better idea as well as specific things we might need to know about you for your safety.

Step 4:

Last, please take a moment and fill out our Rendezvous participant waiver that is required for all to sign when joining our events. You will need to have this signed before you can check in and receive your full access wristband and swag bag Friday morning.


Where is Camp Rendezvous?

2021 is bringing us to an all new destination and we are very giddy about this venue. We have always wanted a water aspect at our Rendezvous events and this year we are thrilled to be on the beach of Bear Lake all weekend. The John A. Hunt Memorial Scout Camp is nestled among the pine, cottonwood, and maple trees on the west shore of beautiful Bear Lake in Garden City, UT.Tucked neatly amid a grove of cottonwood, river birch, maple, and pine trees on the shores of Bear Lake, Camp Hunt is all about aquatics! Located two miles North of Garden City on the west side of the famous Bear Lake. Renovated facilities include air-conditioned dining hall and indoor showers & restrooms.
 

What should I expect at Check In?

We are doing our best to ensure your health and safety as you participate in our event. All participants and crew will receive a buff to wear in your swag bag to wear during carpool, check in, and any other areas you feel the need to. This will be your decision to decide if you would like to wear it outside those times. We aren't requiring it during our outdoor event, but we do ask that you are respectful for those who wish to social distance. We want all to feel comfortable with us.  

Thursday 6:00PM - 9:00PM Early Check In *Additional ticket add on*

*Our S'more Social will begin at 7PM allowing plenty of time to set up and enjoy this time.

If you decide to purchase this $20 add-on, you will be able to join a day early, get checked in, set up your camp, and hang with all of us to answer any last minute questions you might have.

  • When you arrive to our location and enter the ASDT Rendezvous base camp, you will be greeted by members of the ASDT Crew. They will direct you to where you can set up your tent and park your vehicle. Once you are all set, you will make your way to the common area where you will officially check in. You will receive your weekend's schedule, participant wristband which is to be worn all weekend, and your event tee. This is a great opportunity to meet other participants that traveled solo and looking for new friends just like you! Plan to set up camp, and feel relaxed and not rushed for the next morning activities. If you have any last minute questions, this is a perfect time to ask.  

*If you are arriving later Thursday evening, that's okay! We will check you in the following morning. Please make sure we are aware of your late arrival.

This means, have your hydration packs filled (water spigots are spread out all over camp), snacks packed etc. You will know the activity schedule before you arrive. We will start our first activity promptly at 11am.

Activities

When we first started the Rendezvous, we wanted to create an atmosphere that was welcoming to all ability levels. This is done by having activities that all levels and ages can enjoy and feel encouraged while joining, rather than discouraged and frustrated. AndShesDopeToo believes in creating the best first experience possible when trying a new outdoor sport. If you enjoy yourself the first time, you're more than likely to step into that space a second time. We will be taking advantage of the beautiful land we have for our use and having the majority of activities right here at Camp Rendezvous. We will be offering a wide range of round the clock activities that are open for anyone to join whether you begin at the start, or jump in half way, and activities that will need for you to sign up prior. These specific activities will have scheduled times all throughout camp. Please be patient as we are still gathering information and confirmed details for Trail Running, Climbing, SUP, Mountain Biking, Hiking etc.


Non Sign up Activities

Join in at any time, spaces for all!


Yoga

Enjoy a wake up morning flow to start your day off right, and end the evening with a relaxing restore to give your body an enjoyable stretch before you conclude the day and prepare for another round the following day!

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.

TRANSPORTATION

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.

 
When does the Rendezvous start and when does it end?
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.

  • Water- We have multiple fresh water spigots in our camp that you are able to use anytime. I would suggest bringing jugs to fill up at camp and leave at your tent. We will be having a Yeti hydration station at camp that will be filled with water through out the weekend.
  • Fire- We have fire rings that are available for you to use at anytime in the common area. Each morning we will have them lit. You are able to bring your own personal fire ring as long as it is above ground and in it's own bowl. Please prepare and bring your own firewood if you need for your personal needs. Remember, morning activities come quickly and we have your dinners covered! We encourage community, please know all participants are invited to make a friend and pull up a chair if you see a fire going.
  • Wind- You can never predict the weather in the desert. It can be completely blue skies one minute and the next, heavy wind/rain storm. Good thing is, it never lasts long. We have had some pretty intense micro bursts come through camp. Those 5 min of wind can do some damage. If you notice the wind picking up, just know it may get extremely windy! Close up your tent windows and door every time you're going to head to an off site activity. Please keep track of your garbage and be considerate if wind came through, what items would blow away. Have your name on important gear in case it blows away from your tent. We encourage you to make sure EVERYTHING is staked down...bring extra stakes in case the wind bends them.
  • Trees- We have beautiful shady trees at camp!
  • Tables- We will have a community area with all of the tables gathered in one location. If you are wanting to bring a small camping table to keep at your tent, you are free to do so.
  • Bathrooms- We will have bathrooms at camp that have flushing toilets in each of them.
  • Showers- We will have multiple showers on site for you to use as part of your Rendezvous ticket. Please bring your own towel and shower shoes to wear if you like. There are lights during the evening if you wish to shower in the PM.

Garden City has always been green thanks to its location along the beautiful Boise River. Here, you can fly fish in the middle of town, meander down a nature path, or test your skills on our famous surfing wave. Whether you’re looking for thrills or a little bit of peace, you’ll find it outside in Garden City.

GREENBELT
Put on your walking shoes or hop on a bike and head for the Boise River greenbelt path. Stretching for 26 miles from Lucky Peak Reservoir, the path winds through Boise, Garden City and Eagle and is one of the best ways to enjoy the outdoors when you visit. The Garden City section has exceptional views of the Boise River and is a natural habitat for dozens of birds and other wildlife species. And with restaurants and Garden City’s craft beverage locations both on the pathway or nearby, it’s easy to make a day of it on the greenbelt!

RIVER FLOATS
Floating the Boise is a time-honored tradition. The river opens for floating once summer turns hot (opening dates vary, but usually sometime in June) and is a favorite pastime for young and old, locals and visitors. It’s two hours of pure relaxation and summer fun.

FLY FISHING
It’s not out of the ordinary to see people in office attire casting in the middle of the river. And why should it be? The Boise River is so accessible in Garden City that it’s part of everyday life. This urban fishery boasts wild and stocked rainbow trout, native whitefish, and brown trout.

BOISE WHITEWATER PARK
This gorgeous park celebrates the lifeblood of the Treasure Valley: the Boise River. It is bounded on one side by Garden City and by Boise on the other, and it has quickly become an essential for the region’s kayakers, river surfers, and stand-up paddleboarders. The centerpiece of the park for adventurers is a man-made wave that varies depending on the water level in the river. That makes just about every week a different experience with the waves.

CRUISE THE CRAFT BEVERAGE CORRIDOR
There are so many great places to sample and taste in Garden City that you could spend the entire day savoring syrahs or pounding pilsners. In fact, there are more wineries, cideries, and breweries per square mile in this town than anywhere else in Idaho.


NEW ASDT CANCELLATION POLICY FOR ALL RENDEZVOUS AND RETREATS SCHEDULED IN 2021 AND BEYOND.

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.


CANCELLATION OF A TRIP BY THE PARTICIPANT

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.

REFUNDS
  • 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

  • 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. We also strongly recommend it covers cancellation, curtailment, personal liability and loss of luggage and personal effects.

TRIP VOUCHER
  • 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.
  • 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.

CANCELLATION OF AN EVENT BY ANDSHE’SDOPETOO

Note: If you have booked a Rendezvous or Retreat that is cancelled due to Force Majeure (including the COVID-19 pandemic or any 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.

Details coming soon!

 

Details Coming soon!

Please be prepared to join in our carpool host cars. We ask that each participant washes their hands and wears their ASDT buff or face mask of choice to cover themselves in the vehicles while en route. We will sanitize each car before the next group arrives. We also are okay if you choose to drive your own vehicle and follow behind.
