So what the heck does Aesir mean? Well, it’s the name given to the gods of the Old Norse. Odin was the chief god (our Unit leader). Other important Aesir include Thor, Freyr, Tyr & Loki. Once invested into the Unit, you will receive a God name yourself. We’re all about the Vikings, so you will see our den adorned with hammers, helmets, pole-arms and various other Viking implements.
Our Unit has a diverse range of interests; rock climbing, skiing (both water and snow), hiking and camping are just a few of the things we get up to. Anything you want, we’re ready to give it a go. The Unit consists of experienced members including many Leaders in other sections. Many of our activities are oriented to the outdoors and include camping and hiking. The Aesir has a high percentage of its Rovers working on their Baden Powell Award (the highest award in a youth section), and are more than willing to help you get yours.
Aesir are a very welcoming Unit. We are happy to allow anyone into our Unit and are very accepting people. We all have one thing in common - we believe that no matter what, Rovers are there to have fun, even when the going is tough. Aesir give you a chance to get away from life (if only for a couple of hours each week) and spend some time in a relaxing, enjoyable atmosphere without the peer pressures associated with many other groups. It also provides support should you wish to pursue more challenging activities.
So give us an email or check out our facebook page (to see our current events!), and begin your journey in Rovers, with the Aesir Rover Unit.
