Invitation to National Rover Camp: roverVOCO

Every few years, the German Catholic Scout Association organizes  a national camp exclusively for Rovers, which is called roverVOCO. Like the Roverway, it is a once-in-a-lifetime event for Rovers and their leaders, to which we would  like to invite international rovers!

 

Join us for “roverVOCO” from 10th to the 18th of April 2022 in Germany. With the Rover Moot unfortunately being cancelled, we are offering this alternative opportunity to all 15- to 21-year-old scouts worldwide.

 

What does roverVOCO mean? 

„voco“ is Esperanto for „voice“ – roverVOCO, therefore, means „the voice of Rovers“. We want Rovers to take part in exciting projects, venture out, live in other social environments, and experience their role therein so that they can use their voices to support others!

Why you should participate: 

– Meet 1500 fellow Rovers from Germany

– Experience Germany together with other scouts

– Kick-off event in a welcoming atmosphere in one out of four places in Germany

– Two full days of hands-on projects all over Germany

– Five main camp days action-packed with program near Berlin

Projects 

Essential part of roverVOCO are the projects. In small groups, you’ll dive into a new environment for two full days. Of what kind? You can choose between projects regarding society, environment & sustainability, politics, or experiencing East Germany

Timeline

End of registration. We will start allocating the projects, and you’ll get all details about your trip in early 2022.

Kick-Off event / Opening 10.04. – 11.04.2021

You and up to 400 scouts meet in one of the four regional kick-off locations in Germany. We will begin the camp together with a great party. 

Projects 11.04. – 14.04.2021

It is time to head out. You and a group of up to 50 people travel to your project, taking trains and busses. After your arrival, you have the chance to make new friends, gain impressions and gather experiences while participating in the project. Take those memories with you make your way to the final camp.

Camp 14.04. – 18.04.2021

North of Berlin is the “Ziegeleipark Mildenberg“  an old industrial compound, now a museum with a big outdoor area, and our campsite for five days.

All participants will be meeting there, so the closer you get, the more scouts you’ll meet on your way.

We will spend the time sharing our unique project experiences, celebrating Easter together, and generally just having a great time.


How much does it cost?
 

The participation fee will be between 190€ and 250€ per person for the complete Camp. We start at 250€, but the more participants sign up, the cheaper it gets. Food, program, and travel during roverVOCO are included. Your travel to the kick-off event and your departure from the campsite near Berlin are not included and have to be organized and paid by yourself.
