International Rendezvous 2020 Virtual Event Begins on Friday, July 31 at 3:00 PM Pacific Time!

While our original, in-person event at Camp Hi-Sierra was cancelled due to COVID-19, our virtual event is quickly approaching. We have scouts joining us from the UK, Denmark, Australia, Taiwan, Bolivia, Egypt, Japan, and Chile among other countries, and you are invited to be there, too! This event is free, but you must register to join the fun. Our virtual event will begin next Friday afternoon 7/31 at 3:00 pm Pacific Time.


The International Rendezvous 2020 Virtual Event will consist of:

  • Meeting with scouts and scouters from around the world via our Discord Server (Officially begins Friday and runs until the following afternoon) followed by...
  • Our International Rendezvous 2020 Zoom Call where we will share our favorite scouting memories (link to this Zoom call will be sent separately after you have registered)
  • Concluding with participation in a Virtual Campfire along with the rest of SVMBC!
