Roverway 2016 is an international event like no other, hosted by the Federation of Scouts and Guides of France.
As part of a Patrol of six to eight UK Scouts or Guides (and a 'tribe' of 40 participants from across Europe), you'll start by exploring France for six days on one of a number of paths. You can choose one of four paths based on themes - solidarity, culture, environment or peace.
Then you'll join 5,000 international Scouts and Guides for the main event - five days of adventure at Yvelines, Jambville, around 40 miles north-west of Paris. Activities at the camp will be themed around being your own superhero, broadening horizons, making choices and a better world.
Participants must be aged 16 to 22 and a member of either Girlguiding or The Scout Association. Members aged over 22 can join the International Service Team.
As part of the joint UK Contingent you'll be supported to build your own adventure before the event at two dedicated briefing weekends. Whether you want to race across the English Channel or explore the culture of Paris, it'll be an unforgettable experience.
Joining the IST is a great way to be a part of Europe's flagship Scouting and Guiding event and meet other people from across Europe. You'll participate in the briefing weekends and help to shape this exciting event. The IST will be based at Jambville throughout Roverway, bringing this event to life!
