Roverway 2018

In the summer of 2018, from July 23rd to August 2nd, Scouting Nederland will hold the 2018 edition of the Roverway. This will be a challenging international event for European guides and scouts between the ages of 16 to 22. About 3,000 Rovers and Rangers will participate in the Roverway, coming from over twenty countries.

The main section of Roverway Camp will be held in the centre of the Netherlands at the new International Dutch Scout Centre Scoutinglandgoed Zeewolde. This International Scout and Guide Centre of 70ha is located in the Province of Flevoland, on land that was reclaimed from the sea half a century ago, near the site of the 18th World Jamboree of 1995

The participants will be divided into international teams, with whom they will participate in the Path of their choice. These Paths are located throughout the Netherlands. After the Path, the participants travel to International Scout and Guide Centre Zeewolde where the central camp will take place for another few days.

The motto of the Roverway 2018 is ‘Opposites Attract’. This motto is visually indicated by the signpost on their logo. Both the signpost and the international ‘Y’ icon depict the Paths, which are an essential part of the Roverway 2018 program. The water and ‘Lelievlet’ - a typical Dutch Sea Scouts sailing boat - reflect the fact that we would like to offer a sailing experience to every Rover or Ranger during our stay at the International Scout and Guide Centre in Zeewolde.

The colours are based on the national Rover and Ranger age section badge, where blue stands for the world as exploration base and orange stands for the Dutch national identity and the Royal House of Orange. In addition, orange is the national ‘section colour’ for Rovers and Rangers in The Netherlands. The three points of the logo represent the three educational objectives (Character, Curiosity & Career).

Working with Travel Places certainly enhanced the experience we had. The staff were helpful and acted in a timely way to any query we had. Whether it was before our departure when they arranged wheelchairs at all of the airports for us, or on our departure from Tokyo when they helped with our overflowing luggage, their help was invaluable. We have begun planning our next adventure with Travel Places – I hope it will be the first of many!
Cath Wright, Unit 48 Scout Leader
Thank you to Travel Places for your amazing organisation, professionalism and customer service throughout the two year journey – we quite literally couldn’t have done it without you!
Jessica Plumtree, Unit 18 Scout Leader
Planning the logistics, accommodation and programme for over 4,000 people is very challenging and delivering this in the Japanese heat must have been a real challenge. Your team were professional and resilient throughout. Travel Places played a part in the success of the Jamboree Experience and your support is appreciated not only by the CMT but by the wider contingent.
Matt Hyde, Chief Executive - The Scout Association
Thank you for your patience, flexibility, advice and support throughout the project. The dedication you showed throughout was incredible. The Contingent really enjoyed the pre-event experience and post-event tours. This of course was largely thanks to your thorough organisation and planning. Your support and expertise on the event allowed myself and the rest of the Contingent Management Team to really focus on ensuring the participants had the best possible time, for which I cannot thank you enough.
Richard Taylor, Contingent Manager, Roverway Finland 2012
I wanted to write to you to formally thank you for all your hard work and support over the last year on the Roverway project. I know that at times things were quite tough and you, and your team, often had to respond to late changes and last minute requests. Thank you for your patience, flexibility, advice and support throughout this project. The dedication you showed throughout was incredible. I know I speak for all the members of the Contingent Management Team and the International Office when I say that we could not have delivered the event without you.
