Get ready for Rovers Centenary!
Next year will mark 100 years since the start of the Rover Scouts section and the very first Scouting Programme for young adults. Preparations for the celebration of the Rover Centenary worldwide are well under way, but you can still join! Here are some ideas on how to celebrate and stay up-to-date with the celebration activities taking place around the world.
The 2018 Rovers Centenary will come under the theme – Rovering … your way and beyond. Key events of the celebration include:
International Youth Day - (12 August 2018)
Young adults are the focus of the centenary celebrations, with this in mind, International Youth Day has been chosen as the common day to mark the Centenary worldwide.
International Rover Week and Regional Events
Kandersteg International Scout Centre (KISC) will join the celebrations by organising the International Rover Week. Similarly, all Regional Rover Scout events in 2018 will also mark the Centenary via celebrations, projects and activities: Roverway 2018 (Europe), 2018 Interamerica Scout Moot and 2018 Arab Scout Moot.
National Scout Organizations (NSOs) of Australia, Brazil, France, Italy, Portugal, South-Africa and UK, have expressed their intentions to join the campaign and will mark it with activities promoting Rover Scouting in their countries. All NSOs are welcome to join the Rovers Centenary campaign.
