Welcome to the site of Las Vegas Area Council’s Mountain Man Rendezvous. Started in 1984 on the Colorado River as a high adventure activity for Varsity Scout teams with 30 scouts. The event has grown to over 1000 scouts participating and open to Boy Scouts, Varsity Scouts, and Venturers

This modern Scout version of a rendezvous also brings together many people, as troops, teams, and crews come from Utah and Arizona, as well as Nevada.

The purpose of the rendezvous is to teach youth about the tradition of the annual mountain man summer gatherings held from approximately 1825 to 1840 in various locations in the western United States.

The 2006 event was featured in Scouting magazine’s October 2006 issue.

The 30th Annual Mountain Man Rendezvous will be February 6-8 , 2015 Up near Beatty, NV. Mark these dates on your calendar.
