Rovers are the third branch of Scouting with a strong focus on community engagement and social inclusion. Rovers develops leadership qualities and encourages Crew Members to grow themselves and find their path in life.
Rovers is open to all young men and women aged between 18-30. Being a Rover gives you access to a world of adventure, excitement, and challenge! You also don’t have to have been a Cub or Scout or Guide to join Rovers.
A group of Rovers is known as a “Crew” and each Rover Crew is different, tailoring its activities to the requirements of its members. Crews vary in size from a handful of members to as many as 20. Most Crews meet monthly depending on how active the Crew is.
Crews also thrive on social activities such as harbor cruises, inter-crew activities, sailing, hiking, camping, Minute to Win it Challenges and national and international events known as “Moots”.
Rovering can also enhance your CV and increase your value within the employment market as it not only expands physical abilities but also develops character skills such as leadership, problem solving abilities, independence, … which are highly sought after within our current society.
The Rover programme is built around four areas of development:
- Personal – Grow yourself on a personal level, learn to construct a CV, get your driver’s license and find your spiritual path.
- Movement – Develop an understanding of the Scout and Cub sections, involve yourself with running a Pack or Troop meeting/event.
- Community – Review your community and establish how to improve it with an action plan, consider doing a community service project.
- Leadership – Ultimately develop yourself to become a better citizen and leader in your Crew.
