Rovers (men and ladies ages 18 - 26)

A long-held tradition in the Rover Program is that the activities are limited only by the imagination of the Rovers themselves.

Throughout the stages of the Rover Program, youth will experience activities which will allow them to develop attitudes, skills and knowledge within the following six Program Activity Areas:

  • Leadership Skills
  • Life Skills
  • Communication Skills
  • Spiritual and Social Issues
  • Personal Interests
  • Outdoor Activities

The composition of individual programs will be built through the setting of personal goals, within the Program Activity Areas and the integration of these goals into the crew activities.

Build a strong crew

Rovers form and meet in a group called a crew. Rovers develop and manage their own program under the mentorship of a respected advisor. Rovers adhere to a promise and motto.

Become a strong leader

Bring on the adventure

Within your Rover crew, each member is assigned a leadership role and responsibility. Each of you will get to practise leadership, management and communication skills. Each of you will learn to accept personal and group challenges, face difficulty, endure hardship and draw on the strength of your team mates to make everything work. You will develop practical leadership skills that will reinforce initiative and a drive for success.

The Rover program

The outdoors is an essential part of the Rover program. Rovers often participate in adventurous activities like mountain climbing, white water rafting, or para-sailing.

Rovers also help their local communities by running service activities such as food drives, park clean-ups, and tree plantings.

What do I wear?

That is your choice ... you can choose a traditional Venturer uniform is similar to your Scout uniform, or adopt the newer style uniform. although you might need a larger shirt. The sash is red with a green border.

Rover Promise:

On my honour
I promise that I will do my best
To do my duty to God and the Queen
To help other people at all times,
And to carry out the spirit of the Scout Law.

Rover Motto:

Service

Scouting Salute

A Scouting salute is a special sign of greeting. To make it, just hold up the three longest fingers in your right hand. Bend the 'pinky' finger down and hold it with your thumb. Raise the tips of your fingers to your forehead, palm facing foreward.

Roving is .....!

What kinds of opportunities exist?

Rovers are provided many opportunities that include:

Bring on the adventure

  • Duke of Edinburgh Award
    The Duke of Edinburgh's (D of E) Award in Canada is a challenge program of leisure time activities for young people between the ages of 14 to 25. It is operated and proclaimed worldwide. While it is not a Scouting award, it is one in which you are encouraged to achieve as most of your Venturer requirements match the D of E award requirements.

  • Foreign Service
    Rovers can plan and participate in an international project sponsored by the Canadian Scout Brotherhood Fund. Read In the Valley of Peace about such a experience.

  • Reginald K. Groome Memorial Scholarship
    Fondation Scouts Canada Foundation has established several scholarships to be awarded annually to support members of Scouts Canada entering or continuing full time studies at a Canadian university or college. These scholarships are presented in memory of Reginald K. Groome who, in addition to many other Scouting roles, served as Chairman of the Boy Scouts of Canada Trust (now the Fondation Scouts Canada Foundation) for a number of years.
