Rover Scouts welcome young adults from 18 to 25 years of age. You don’t need to have any Scouting experience, but you do need to keep up with some adventurous people and their adrenaline-packed adventures!
A group of Rovers is known as a “Unit”. Each Rover Unit is different, consisting of anywhere from a handful of members to 50 or more. Most crews meet weekly. A Unit’s activities are planned and run by the Rover Scouts themselves – which means they are tailored to the requirements and interests of members.
Every Unit is different. Each has its own traditions, special interests and personalities. A Rover Unit runs itself, with an elected Unit Leader and executive.
Rover Scouts enjoy helping others, having a great time and taking on new challenges. You’ll need a ‘give it a go’ attitude and you’ll be rewarded with some serious fun.
Rover Scouts are the oldest youth section in the Scouts. 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 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!
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!
