Rover Scouts is the oldest youth section in the Scouting Movement with members being aged between 18 and 25. Rover Scouts is open to everyone of all genders and you don’t need any previous involvement in Scouting to join.
Local Rover groups are called “Crews” or “Units.” They usually meet once a week and attend a wide range of events and activities tailored to what their members are interested in. Rovers is a unique section of Scouting as we don’t have leaders – instead we develop a program which suits our interests and run it ourselves. Most Crews and Units have a Rover Advisor (RA) or two who offer guidance when needed.
The range of possible activities is endless however we love outdoor activities such as bushwalking, canoeing, sailing, caving, skiing, canyoning, rock climbing, scuba diving and then some! We also have a wide range of social activities such as our annual Ball, Bushdance and State Moot (a Moot is a Rover camp, run by Rovers for Rovers).
Rover Scouts are active members of our communities. We love getting involved in volunteering both inside and outside of Scouting. You’ll see us at a variety of events – from a local fundraising BBQ to ANZAC Day to the Sydney Lord Mayor’s Picnic.
