Rendezvous

question-mark_32

What is a Rendezvous?

A Rendezvous is a council-sponsored, two-night Troop Camp with program and activities planned and led by Cadettes, Seniors or Ambassadors for younger troops. This is an excellent opportunity for girls and adults attending to improve their overnight and camp skills toward longer trips.

It is recommended that inexperienced troops have at least one practice overnight at a troop member’s backyard or nearby venue prior to attending a Rendezvous.

Costs
 

Troop Rendezvous Cost: $105 per girl; $35 per Safety Activity Checkpoints ratio adult

Me & My Gal/Guy Rendezvous Cost: $105 per girl; $105 per adult

How many adults should I plan to bring?
 

All adults attending must be approved volunteers of Girl Scouts of Colorado. At least one adult from each troop must have completed the Overnight Trips training, and at least one must be CPR/First Aid certified. Because meals are provided, Cooking and Camping training is not a requirement of leaders at a Rendezvous.

Girl/Adult ratios must be maintained per Safety Activity Checkpoints for each troop in attendance.

Each troop is permitted only ratio adults at the $35 rate.  Adults beyond ratio will be considered for placement if space is available after the four-week deadline. Extra adults must pay the $105 fee.

Adults needed to attend in order to assist a girl with special needs will be considered on a case-by-case basis, in consultation with the Camp Director. Please contact the Events Registrar for more information or to request space for additional adults to accommodate girls with special needs.
