33rd National Rover Moot – Biannual gathering of Rovers of Sri Lanka Scout Association will be held from 6th to 10th of February 2019 at Boys’Town Diyagala, Ragama. All Scouts who are above the age of 17 Years are eligible to participate at this camp.
The term “Rover Scouts” was first mentioned by Baden-Powell in The Boy Scouts Head Quarters Gazette in August 1918 and the scheme was fully established by November 1919. He wrote a handbook for the new scheme, which was published in 1922 under the famously known ‘Rovering to Success’. It contained his philosophy for a happy adult life as well as ideas for activities that Rover Scouts could organize for themselves.
While the celebration of the Rovers Centenary will primarily be the responsibility of the NSOs, calls for a closer working collaboration at all levels – World, Regional and National – should be done. Therefore, we propose to support and collaborate with NSOs to highlight the Centenary through various activities, focusing on the main areas of activities suggested by the Empowering Young Adults, Guidelines for the Rover Scout section document that will be developed, planned and rolled out throughout the year.
