Rovers is an exciting and rewarding section of the Scouting Movement, open for men and women aged between 18 and 26. While many members have come through Scouting or Guides it definitely is not essential.
Being a Rover opens up opportunities that provide physical, mental and social challenges. Rovers participate in an extensive range of activities; both within the movement and within the wider community. Every Rover Crew is different. Rovers are open-minded people who are always willing to try new activities.
Bushwalking, camping, caving, canoeing, survival weekends, ski-touring, rock climbing and scuba-diving are just some of the more adventurous activities undertaken by Rovers.
Other activities such as mini-golfing, swimming, sailing, movies and much more are incorporated in many crews’ weekly programs. Rovers develops individuals’ abilities to lead and shows members the value of helping other people.
Service is an important part of any Rover Crew, and Rovers give back to younger youth within the movement and organizations within the wider community. Rovers run their own programs and events, as well as several Rover chalets and camps.
Above all though, Rovers is fantastic fun and a supporting environment in which to learn and grow as an individual.
