Roverway 2018

Norfolk Scouts is excited to be part of a joint unit with Cambridgeshire for Roverway 2018.

This year Roverway is being held in Amsterdam from 21 July – 2 August 2018.  Ed Cubitt, from Norfolk Scouts has already taken part in a joint camp and met up with his counterparts from Cambridgeshire.  Ed is currently still fundraising for the trip, so if you would like to know if you can help support him please get in touch with Beka Millard (ACC (International)).

We have had a space open up in the Patrol so if you are, or know someone who may be, interested between the age of 16-22 and looking for a European Adventure this summer please get in touch with Beka.

An idea of the programme is as follows and further information, including trip costs, can be found at the website https://ukcontingent.co.uk/roverway-2018/:

21-23 July The UK Scout Contingent will join together for the first time in Amsterdam for our UK-only pre-event for both patrols and IST.  For 48 hours, you will be living in the Netherland’s capital with opportunities to see all the sights whether by Amsterdam Metro, bicycle or (of course) canal boat!

23 July Roverway 2018 will officially start at The Hague, the International City of Justice and Peace.  In a Dutch ceremony and against a stunning backdrop, expect a modern ceremony packed with fun and music as all 3,000 participants and IST from across Europe meet.

24-28 July After the Opening Ceremony, many Patrols from different countries will come together to form a mixed international crew on a Path.  The 5 day Path will allow you to work closely with other patrols on a specific theme ranging from outdoor and adventure to culture and heritage.

29 July – 2 August Roverway 2018 will conclude with a 5 day central camp at the International Scout & Guide Centre, Zeewolde.  The Jamboree-style camp will allow all participants, patrols and IST to meet and take part in activities from sailing and a live citizenship game to discovering other cultures at the many food houses.
