What is a Rover Scout?
Rover Scout, n. a Homosapien aged between 18 and 25 years old, dedicated to fun and adventure, whilst serving the community in the Scouting way.
Rovers are the oldest Youth Section in the Scouting Movement. By taking part in the many opportunities available to you as a Rover you will experience fun, fellowship and personal growth.
Rovers meet as a Unit and participate in a variety of activities. These activities offer you the opportunity to mix socially, push yourself physically, challenge yourself mentally and develop spiritually. Each Unit is different and chooses the activities that suit its members the most.
Joining a Rover Scout Unit could be one of the most important steps in your life. It can open doors to new friendships, fun, adventure and some unforgettable experiences while at the same time developing your leadership and organisational skills.
A Unit's activities are planned and run by the Rovers themselves, with plenty of opportunity to develop personal abilities and learn new skills. You could become involved in organising a simple weekend away for just several people, a major event involving thousands of participants, or anything in between!
The Rover Scout motto is "Beyond the Horizon" encouraging all our members to always be looking ahead for the next challenge!
There are close to 2,600 Rovers throughout Australia. Rovers or their equivalent can also be found in many countries throughout the world, offering the opportunity to make great contacts when travelling and take part in international projects.
No other leisure-time activity offers as much.... take the plunge, and try Rovers!
