International Rover Week Summer

Activity overview

Take a chance to experience the Permanent Mini Jamboree together with Rovers from all over the World!

Between the 11th and 19th August, Rovers from all around the world will gather at the World Scout Centre for one single reason: to experience the International Friendship that only Scouting can offer. During the event, you will have the chance to experience the Permanent Mini Jamboree and participate in a wide range of KISC's best summer activities. You will also have the opportunity to look beyond borders and, together with like-minded Rovers, address global issues and create projects which will create a positive impact in our society!

Who can participate?

All Rovers, Rangers and Leaders, 18 to 26 years old, who are members of a National Scout Organisation recognised by WOSM or WAGGGS. You can participate individually or together with a friend!
