Rovermoot is the camp for our third scouting section, the Rovers (after Cubs and Scouts). The camp is made up of an itinerant part (usually 4 days, could be one day more or less) and the main camp where the Rovers are staying and going to be involved in challenging activities for the rest of the week.
Rovermoot 2020 will take place in Calabria, province of Cosenza, in the territory of a small town
called Longobucco. We have evaluated and chosen this locality because it is, from a naturalistic
point of view, one of the most beautiful and rich areas in Italy and therefore ideal for itinerant
camps and activities out in the open. Thanks to the features of the area, rich in ancient forests, a
profound sense of connection with Nature will be the main inspiration for our planned activities.
The theme of the whole camp is “The awakening of the Giants”, where the giants are the
centuries-old larch pines of the nearby National Sila Parc, called also the Giants of the Sila,
because they reach up to 45 Mt height. It also symbolizes the Awakening of Nature, who cannot stay silent, while mankind is going on destroying the four natural environments and endangering so many species of animals.
In other words, it is time for a change!
We need to leave the World a better place than we found it!

Itinerant camp: the idea is that the whole itinerant camp, that will last a few days can be carried out by the Unit of Rovers, using its own and straight necessary equipment (for cooking and sleeping). This makes the whole journey more challenging and coherent with the techniques and methods of this particular scouting section. Rovers will need to be equipped with sleeping bag and pad, adequate backpacks, flashlight, cutlery and dinnerware set; while the whole unit has to be equipped with tents, camp stoves and cooking sets, pans, first aid kit, compass.
