We do! we have gathered all those memories and fantastic stories in Rover Memories! Please download, share but most of all enjoy our Rover Memories.

Are you a believer? A Christian, Muslim or Bhuddist? Do you believe in a God or just that there is something? Do you pray or stay silent? It doesn't matter, anyone is welcome. New inventions are made where different religions come together, and this diversity is a necessary thing in face of the challenges of today. This morning several hundreds of scouts gathered to celebrate these differences and bring them together in unison. Together, these scouts sang, prayed, listened and watched the...
While most of the Rovers and Rangers figured out that the sub camps were named after tulips, they had no idea of their true meaning. Here’s the best interpretations for each subcamp name! Moonwalker: ”The tulip dances like Michael Jackson during the night!” “There are few trees around, so it looks like the moon surface” Violet Bird : “ The tulip petals look like feathers of a bird” “ The tulip’s stem ressembles a bird’s beak, or the tulip looks like a blueberry! ” Brilliant Star “ This tulip...
The buses arrived, the tents were put up, and the participants and IST put on their Scout and Guide uniforms. Finally, it was time to welcome everyone to Zeewolde with our Opening Ceremony! The crowd gathered at the main stage chatting and laughing, sharing stories from Paths and catching up with friends. Soon it was time for the Ceremony to begin. The Project Directors arrived to a cheering audience, but they were not the only VIPs. Next came a speech from the Mayor of Zeewolde welcoming us...
Music pumped out across the campsite as the Schwarzhaus (or rather the black fortress) came to life and it didn’t take long for IST to arrive. Schnittchen (a type of pork liver pate), Pretzels and Currywurst, as well as a selection of German (alcohol free!) beers were served to a hungry and thirsty crowd. A large dance tent is hazy with dry ice, the DJ is keeping the songs coming all night long and IST can be seen throughout the tent dancing away. Mogli, one of the organisers tells us that this...
The participants have finally arrived at Zeewolde! Tents are up and Opening Ceremony is on the horizon, but some are also looking beyond tonight. What are your expectations of the remaining days of Roverway 2018. Michelle, UK “I’m looking forward to going swimming in the lake and going sailing.” Phoebe, UK “I’m just looking forward to everything! All the new experiences.” Eleanor, UK “I’m looking forward to trying all the activities with people from different countries.” Anastasia, Cyprus...
Zeewolde burst into life this morning as coaches delivered participants from their paths all across Holland. Many participants have travelled for over an hour, and look a little weary. Luis and Giuseppe, both from Spain, are excited for the camp at Zeewolde even though they are not sure what they will be doing. Participants can be seen clapping and singing songs as they make their way down the road into camp - a welcoming committee guide them to subcamps where they pitch their tents, and...
Path #002 “We are like family now!” The Rangers and Rovers of Path #002 were returning from a canoeing activity when they welcomed us to the campsite they have spent the week in. Just by looking in the eyes of these tired but radiant faces you could sense that they had amazing stories to share. Participants from the German, Romanian, Slovenian, Portuguese and Spanish contingents formed path #002, organised by the WAGGGS. When asked what they enjoyed the most so far, the answer was one: meeting new...
