For 18-26 year olds, Rover Scouts is a network offering exciting opportunities. Whether you’re into rock-climbing, kayaking or something more obscure, you’ll always find someone to share your interests. It can open doors to new friendships, adventure and unforgettable experiences while at the same time developing your leadership and organisational skills.
Rover Scouts is not just a social club though but is a network of friends offering exciting opportunities. For some Rovers, studying is over and real life is about to begin, for some they are already in the thick of it. University, jobs, money and relationships are all a part of life. This is the time of life when we need to build our experiences, make our mistakes and enjoy life.
So when you and your mates organise a trip to Switzerland, attend any of the national or international events for Rovers, or use your time to help out in your community, you’re gaining vital skills that will help you out in later life – Rover Scouts helps you harness this.
There is still a lot to achieve and still a huge potential for you as a Rover Scout to carry on in a way that best includes what you want out of Scouting, so don’t be afraid to get involved.
As so much is going on in the life of the average Rover, the programme is designed to be flexible. You pick the challenges and you decide when and how you carry them out.
Everything beyond this is up to you. The possibilities are endless. Go for it.
“Last week we were abseiling at Ix-Xaqqa. This week we were on the beach helping out with the Beaver Section at their first swimming activity. Today we are preparing for our next Community Service involvement. Where else can you make a difference and have an excellent time yourself? Rovering – it’s HIGHLY recommended but be careful as it can be HIGHLY contagious!”
