Each Rover Unit has their own individual program of activities – in addition to a range of major annual events run under the auspices of the Sydney North Region Rover Council (RRC). These can attract up to several hundred participants. Sometimes they are run by one Unit or sometimes by a committee from several. Rovers from all Regions across NSW and interstate are always very welcome to attend.
Interested in running one of the events below? Check the Rover Resources page for Region Rover Activities Guidelines and Region Rover Activities Hints & Tips.
A Moot = a gathering of Rovers. Usually held on the third weekend in March every year (under review for 2024), this traditional-style Moot is a weekend-long camp where Rovers take part in a program of competitive activities. The winning Unit receives a trophy and the opportunity to run the event the following year. Each Moot has a theme, and there’s dinner provided, plus great night-time entertainment with plenty of time for socialising.

Usually held on the last full weekend in February every year (under review for 2024). Traditionally Roventures have had a similar format to a Moot, and after a couple of years as a one-day event, by popular demand it returned to a weekend camp for 2023! Rover Units are encouraged to bring along all their “feeder” Venturer Units, get together to camp and compete as a combined team… or “Crunit”. The aim is to build stronger bonds between Rovers and Venturers, and to give Venturers an experience of one type of Rover activity.

Generally held on the first weekend in August every year, but can vary. This is a weekend commitment for all Rovers in the Region, where muscle and skills can be combined to take on a major community or Scouting service job. For 2022, the project was a working-bee at Ingleside Scout Camp. Email for details to firstname.lastname@example.org
The Kup is a fairly non-serious round-robin inter-Unit competition, traditionally six-a-side soccer, but has also been played for ultimate frisbee, quidditch and OzTag. For 2022, the Kup was played for netball!
