Rovers are the oldest youth section in the Scouting movement, focussed on:
- Vastly expanding comfort zones
- Exploring and understanding growing responsibilities
- Becoming well-rounded global citizens
- Facing and overcoming fears
- Discovering potential
- Understanding roles in creating a better world
By taking part in the many opportunities available as a Rover, young men and women experience fun, fellowship and personal growth. Rover Scouts see the purpose of Scouting realised – they are well rounded individuals ready to help create a better world.
Rover Scouts build on their roles as active members of their local, national and global communities, becoming increasingly aware of the challenges facing communities and the environment, tackling real issues and influencing positive change.
Rovers meet as a Crew and participate in a variety of activities that offer the opportunity to mix socially, be physically and mentally challenged and develop spiritually. Each Crew is different and chooses the activities that suit its members the most.
Joining a Rover Crew can open doors to new friendships, fun, adventure and unforgettable experiences, while at the same time developing leadership and organisational skills.
Rover Crew activities are planned and run by the Rovers themselves, whether it’s a simple weekend away for just several people, a major event involving thousands of participants, or anything in between!
Every three years, Rover Scouts have the opportunity to attend a national Rover Moot, where they join about 1,000 other Rover Scouts from around Australia and across the world for a 10 day camp. There are also opportunities to attend international Rover Moots and the World Moot every 4 years.
