Rover Scouts welcome young adults from ages 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 adrenaline-packed challenges! Rover Scouts:

  • Experience new levels of independence
  • Are responsible for themselves and others
  • Learn to adapt to changing circumstances
  • Specialise and expand their interests
  • Explore global citizenship
  • Adventure beyond the horizon

Each Rover Scout Unit is different, consisting of anywhere from a handful of members to 50 or more. Most Unit's meet weekly and a Units activities are planned and run by the Rover Scouts themselves – which means they are tailored to the requirements and interests of members. Rover Scouts complete the program no later than their 26th birthday.
