Rover Scouts welcome men and women from 18–25 years. You don’t need to have any Scouting experience, but you do need to keep up with some adventurous people and their adrenalin-packed challenges!
Every Rover 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.
Every three years, Rover Scouts converge on one location for a ten-day extravaganza of activities at the National Moot. There are Rover Councils at regional and state level, helping to shape our organisation. And there are many training opportunities to build skills and qualifications that are widely recognised outside Scouting.
The Scouting movement is all about producing leaders, and here’s where Rover Scouts get to shine. You’ll be able to help lead activities with younger Scout Groups and make a difference in young people’s lives. This means a Working with Children check for all over 18s, but it’s a small price to pay for the rewards of leadership. You’ll also have opportunities to bring about positive change in your community.
Rover Scouts has opened so many doors for me. I’ve travelled overseas, gained skills in project management and served my community.
