What is Rover Focus?


Rover Scouts (including Rover Clubs & Societies members)

The weekend will include workshops, discussions, the National Rover Forum and a healthy dose of social activities. It will be a chance to meet up and discuss any issues and have fun with all the Rovers you know and also a chance to meet and hear Rover Team’s plans for the new year and contribute to it!

The annual election of Rover Scout representatives will also take place during the forum.


Rover Advisors/Group Leaders/County Commissioners

There will also be a gathering of Rover Advisors and other interested Scouters to discuss topics relating to supporting your Rovers, and also to consider the topics of discussion at the National Rover Scout Forum. A separate stream of sessions will be run throughout the weekend tailored made for you.
