Roverway 2018


Roverway 2018 is an incredible European adventure for all 16 – 22 year olds. Hosted by Scouting Nederland and organised by the European Scout Region of the World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM) and World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS).

In the summer of 2018, from July 23rd to August 2nd, Scouting Nederland will be running the 2018 Roverway event. This will be a challenging international event for European Guides and Scouts between the ages of 16 to 22. This event is organized by the European Scout Region of the World Organisation of the Scout Movement (WOSM) and the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS).

About 3,000 Scouts & Guides will participate in the Roverway, coming from over twenty countries. The participants will be divided into international teams, with whom they will participate in the Path of their choice. These Paths are located throughout the Netherlands. After the Path, the participants travel to International Scout and Guide Centre Zeewolde where the central camp will take place for another few days. During the Roverway, youth from all over Europe come into contact with each other and develop both themselves and others.

In August 2016, the Roverway took place in France. Earlier events were in Finland, Iceland, Italy and Portugal. Scouting Nederland expects that their organization of the Roverway will provide a new impulse for Scouting and Guiding especially in the Netherlands.

Somerset has been allocated places for 6 to 8 participants (including 1 aged 18 to 22). This is an ideal opportunity for an Explorer Scout Unit….
