To celebrate the 100th birthday of Rover Scouting the UKSN gives you 'RoverRail', an international adventure event travelling over the European rail network during September 2018.
RoverRail is open to all members of the UKSN, each of whom will join a small team that will plan and journey together on their own route between the UK and the top secret finish point on the European mainland over 5 days.
Checkpoints and events will have be arranged across Europe and teams can choose whether or not they call in at to any or all of the checkpoints. Examples include taking part in the Last Post ceremony at the Menin gate and a campfire at Kandersteg International Scout Centre. There will be opportunities for teams to interact with Rover Scouts from across Europe at a few of the pre-arranged checkpoints/events.
We are working with a team to customise a treasure hunt mobile app which all participants will be required to use to track progress, provide communications to teams and allow check-ins en-route.
We are working on final costings and will announce this later in 2017. The final cost will include your Interrail ticket, insurance, accommodation/food at the finish point. All accommodation/food en-route is down to the teams to sort - as you could be anywhere! You decide!
Bookings will open later in 2017 but for now please join the project and sign up here to keep up to date/register your interest!
