Regular international events

Moot, Roverway, Jamboree - meet with thousands of members from other countries at these inspiring international camps

An unforgettable experience 

There are a number of regular camps which give our older members a chance to really immerse themselves in an adventure abroad. 

At these events, you'll get to:

  • See incredible locations - recent events have been hosted in Sweden, Japan and Canada!
  • Go on a longer trip so you can try out even more exciting and challenging activities
  • Build lasting connections with like-minded WAGGGS and World Organisation of the Scout Movement (WOSM) members from all over the world.

Roverway

Roverway camp is typically split into two halves. First, you'll get to 'rove' wild and free with your patrol, taking a path which may involve trekking, community action, an environmental project or something completely different to tackle as a team. Then, as the week comes to a close, you'll join together with thousands of other members for a huge closing celebration, and a set programme reflective of the host country’s culture and customs.  

Roverway 2018 is being organised by both WAGGGS and WOSM, and will be held in Netherlands from 23 July to 2 August 2018. The theme is Opposites Attract and applications for the Girlguiding contingent are now open

This event is for members aged 16 to 22.

Moot 

Moot - Old English for 'meeting' - is a gathering of thousands of older members of WOSM and WAGGGS from across the world. With a similar format to Roverway, it gives members a chance to get proactive in their teams before joining other participants for ‘Althingi’ which is a big camp for all participants. 

The theme of Moot 2017 was 'change' and participants were asked to commit to making a change in their own lives. The event took place among the breath-taking backdrop of Iceland's mountains and glaciers.

You can find more opportunities to get away with guiding using our Events and Opportunities Finder.

Jamboree

The first ever World Scout Jamboree brought together 8,000 Scouts in London in 1920 and now these events involve more young people than the Olympic Games!

The 24th World Scout Jamboree will take place in 2019, in West Virginia, USA. If you're interested in applying to be a member of the International Service Team (IST), you can register your interest now. IST members take up all kinds of roles, such as running programme activities or supporting contingents from around the world. For more information about the jamboree, visit the UK Scout Contingent site.

Participants at the jamboree must be born between 22 July 2001 and 21 July 2005.

attended World Scout Jamboree, Japan 2015

The biggest challenge for me in Japan has been acclimatising to the heat and humidity – it's been 34 to 40 degrees every day! Many members of The Senior Section are having a fantastic time learning about cultures and traditions from countries that they never dreamed of going to. The enthusiasm from the young women has been fantastic and I feel honoured to have captured that.
