A social camp held over the Labour day long weekend (Early March). Traditionally at the Vasse Campsite near Busselton, right on the beach. Rovers will participate in a few hours service to the local community. There is also traditionally a Gourmet Tour around the famous Margaret River Gourmet Region.
St Georges Day
A time for Rovers to celebrate and pay respects to St. George, the Patron Saint of Scouting. It is traditionally held in King's Park on the 24th of April. Rovers take the opportunity to remember their knightly vows, and all other Scout Sections are invited to attend and enjoy the ceremony and learn about the legend of St. George and the dragon.
The vigil is one of the longest lasting scout traditions in Western Australia, and is the source of immense pride and dedication for all Rover Scout members. Since 1933 Rover Scouts have dutifully maintained their ANZAC Eve Vigil around the State War Memorial in Kings Park.
The annual service camp to the Manjedal Activity Centre held in May; where we put in a large amount of man-hours to help maintain and improve the facility for everyone to enjoy. The Manjedal Activity Centre is located roughly 20km SW of Byford. This camp is about giving something back to scouting, by working on projects in groups, to get as much done as possible over the weekend
The Rover Ball is a formal, annual dinner dance where Rovers can let their hair down and have a great night. This is a change from our usual service or muddy events. The ball is run every year by a different Unit, with a different theme and different location.
Mission Impossible is a Rover run, large intersectional event, where Rovers and Venturers can enjoy the outdoors together. Mission Impossible is a rogaining-hike style event held in a secret location each year, where small teams compete to capture the most points. Mission Impossible also features a massive party each night complete with circus tent and entertainment set up in the remote bushland so that participants can hike hard during the day and party hard at night. This is a great event for Rover-Venturer interactions and an opportunity for us to convince them to link up to Rovers.
