Are You Ready For NEW Adventure? Look Wide!

Rovers welcome young adults from 18 to 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 adventures! A Rover Scouts time in the Section ends by their 26th birthday.

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.

Rovers 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.

Rovers get down and dirty each year in a Mud Bash and costumed chaos reigns at the annual ball. There’s a surfing camp at Anglesea, or an Easter hiking challenge. Plus, you can enjoy our own ski chalet near Falls Creek.

Every three years, Rovers 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 that are widely recognised outside Scouting. Our motto is ‘Service’.

The Scouting movement is all about producing leaders, and here’s where Rovers 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.

The highest achievement in the Rover Section is the Baden-Powell Award.
