Rendezvous camp is a council-sponsored, two-night troop camping opportunity with program and activities planned and presented by a group of 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 highly recommended that inexperienced troops have at least one practice overnighter at a troop member’s home or nearby venue prior to attending a Rendezvous. Each troop is expected to provide an adult with completed leader training and an adult with Overnight Training. Click here to find trainings.
