Rover Scouts

Challenging outdoor activities such as bush walking, canoeing, sailing, caving, ski-touring, canyoning, four-wheel driving, rock-climbing and scuba diving all form an important part of a Rover's calendar.

Rover Scouts welcome young adults from 18–25 years and complete the program no later than their 26th birthday.

You don’t need to have any Scouting experience, but you do need to keep up with some adventurous people and their adrenalin-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 Units 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 has opened so many doors for me. I've travelled overseas, gained skills in project management and served my community.”
