Join Rover Scouts (18-24+) :
Rover Scouts are young adults, these are men and women usually aged between 18 to 24 years of age (but you are never too old to be a Rover Scout if you are unable to fulfil the role as a leader) and making up the fifth section of the Scout Group known as ‘THE CREW’.
Rover Scouts within the Crew participate in the normal Scout Troop activities with additional Rover Scout meetings of their own organisation. This is basically a service section with a progressive and continuing wide ranging training scheme especially suited to young adults leading to the obtaining of Rover Scout proficiency and service badges. Rover Scouts also assist with the training of the Scouts and running of Scout Troop programmes, and assisting with the organisation of the Scout Group activities in all sections as part of the service role.
Rover Scouts are easily recognised by their distinctive and very smart traditional Senior Scout uniform, comprising a khaki short sleeved shirt with green epaulettes, a traditional Scout hat or green beret, navy blue cord shorts, a traditional Scout leather belt, navy blue long socks with two emerald green rings around the sock downturns supported by red garter flashes. They also wear their Scout Group colour neckerchief with a woggle. The uniform is purchased from the Scout Group who maintains a good stock of all Sections’ uniforms.
Rover Scouts meet organise their own activities, adventures and serve, and therefore meetings are arranged to suit. They are required to attend Church Parades held once a month, support the Scout and Senior Scout Troop and Scout Group in activities from time to time by the Scout Group of which they will be notified. Most importantly uphold at all times their SCOUT PROMISE that they solemnly make at their Investiture along with their SCOUT LAW.
Rover scouts take part in a wide range of traditional more advanced scouting activities, challenges and service to the scout group and the community as part of their continuing scout training programme. All within our very friendly family orientated scout group.
ROVER SCOUTING or ROVERING is about maintaining life long friends, as part of a skilled and proficient team, participating fully in the more adventurous activities and providing community service whilst developing ones character, confidence and good citizenship.
Hopefully all Rover Scouts, who are able and time permitting, will become leaders in at least one of the sections within our Scout Group and be very appreciative and give to others the advantages that they have gained through Scouting.
