Being a Rover gives you access to a world of adventure, excitement and challenge...
Rovers help their communities by supporting local organisations and groups, fundraising for charities and voluntary organisations, assisting with environmental projects, and delivering SCOUTS Jamborees, camps, and National Kea & Cub Days.
Rovers develop as individuals through public-speaking, leadership, and event management; but also enjoying outdoor activities like abseiling, caving, rafting, skiing, tramping, car rallies, theatre, music, canoeing and caving.

NZ Rover Moot
Not your ordinary weekend.
The word 'moot' is an Old English word meaning assembly or gathering and Rover Scouts use the word to describe their national and international gatherings. Much like Scouts have a Jamboree and Venturers have Venture. Robert Baden-Powell (the founder of Scouting) first applied the word to a gathering of Rover Scouts in a letter to Percy Bantock Nevill, who co-ordinated the first Moot in London, 1926.
Held over Easter weekend, NZ Moots are an annual event and are organised by a different region each time.
Moots are based on the three foundations of Rovers. Service, Self-development and Social. Also known as the three S's. There is always plenty to do at Moot with many activities planned throughout the weekend.
