What are Rovers?

Rover, n. a male or female Homo sapien aged between 18 and 25 years old, dedicated to fun and adventure, whilst serving the community in the Scouting way.
Rovers are the oldest Youth Section in the Scouting Movement. As a Rover you will experience fun, fellowship and personal growth.

Rovers meet as a Crew and participate in a variety of activities. These activities offer the opportunity to mix socially, push yourself physically, challenge yourself mentally and develop spiritually. Each Crew is different and chooses the activities that suit its members the most.
