She'll Be Right Moot
73rd NZ Rover Moot Karamu 2015
2nd April - 6th April



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. The word was first applied by Robert Baden-Powell to the co-ordinator of the first moot, Percy Bantock Nevill, in London in 1926!

Moot is the Rover sections annual event, organised by a different region each time, much like Venturers have Venture, and Scouts have a Jamboree. Activities revolve around the 3 S’s of Rovering: Social, Self-Development and Service. With these three things in mind, you can be sure the events of the weekend will be action packed, fun-filled and an awesome adventure! Activities usually include:

  • A Tour Day – get out there and try something new!

  • A Service Project – giving back and helping the community!

  • A Shooting Trophy – a round robin of great activities including those old time favourites!

  • A Cross-Country and Tug-o-War!

  • Themed parties each night – a great opportunity to unwind and reflect on the day and socialise after a hard days Mooting.

Moot is also an opportunity to reward Rovers for their yearlong contribution to Rovers, Scouting in general and the community. Often those who have excelled throughout the year will be recognised in front of their peers, and it is a wonderful opportunity to come together for everyone.

Who is eligible? – as above!

Any Full Rover, Associate or Squire in a NZ Rover Crew, as well as Young Leaders under 26 in both Scouting and Guiding. We also welcome international participants, as Rovers or Young Leaders (under 26) in their home association!
