What is a Rendezvous?
A Rendezvous is a council-sponsored, 2-night troop camp with program and activities planned and led by older Girl Scouts - Cadettes, Seniors or Ambassadors. This is an excellent opportunity for girls and adults to progress in their overnight and camp skills toward longer trips.
It is recommended that inexperienced troops have at least one practice overnighter at a troop member’s home or nearby venue prior to attending a Rendezvous.
Troop Rendezvous Cost: $100 per girl; $35 per Safety Ratio Adult
Me & My Gal/Guy Rendezvous Cost: $100 per girl; $100 per adult
Application Processing Fee: $25 per person (Iincluded in the total cost per person above)
The application processing fee is not refundable or transferable.
Balance Due must be received no later than 4 weeks prior to the start of camp.
How many adults should I plan bring?
All adults that attend must be approved volunteers and registered members. At least one adult from each troop must have completed the Overnight Training, and at least one must be CPR/First Aid certified.
Girl/Adult ratios must be maintained per GSCO Volunteer Essentials for each troop in attendance.
Each troop is permitted 2 adults at a discounted rate. Adults beyond ratio will be considered for placement if space is available after the 4 week deadline. Extra adults must pay the full $100 fee.
Additional adults needed to attend in order to assist a girl with special needs will be considered on a case-by-case basis, and in consultation with the child’s parent/guardian and the Camp Director. Please contact the Events Registrar for more information or to request space for additional adults to accomodate girls with special needs.
