International

Peterborough Scouts actively support the ideals of worldwide scouting. In weekly meetings, time is given for activities based on other countries, or that have been passed on from international communities. In all sections, the programme will include elements of international work which develops understanding, respect and appreciation of a variety of faiths, religions and communities. 

In addition to activities carried out at a sectional level, Peterborough Scouts are proud to support a variety of international events. Following successful participation in previous international camps and World Scout Jamboree's, the district continues to promote the following international opportunities to it's members:

Roverway 2018

This event, held every two years for those aged 16-22, is being held in The Netherlands over 12 days in July and August 2018. The UK contingent package will include:

  • A trip to Amsterdam pre-event

  • Opening and Closing ceremonies

  • A 5-day tour of The Netherlands ending at the international camp in Zeewolde

As a patrol of 6 to 8 participants from Cambridgeshire, one young person will be chosen to be the Patrol Leader and asked to lead the contingent.
