Rovers, or Rover Scouts, are the third branch of the Scout Movement. We are an organisation for young men an women, aged 18 to 30, beginning their adult lives, careers, families, etc. Rovering provides a programme where these young adults can use their knowledge to help each other develop, aid their communities and give back to the youth of our communities by applying the Scout Method. Rovers are not simply there to serve others, but we also aim to help each of our members grow through exposure to leadership roles they may not hold in their careers, through skills training and through the provision of fun, constructive outdoor social events.
The Rover motto is simply ‘Service’- split into 3 pillars, namely service to Self, the Community and the Scout Movement. Each Crew incorporates these 3 pillars differently into their programmes based on their location, size and scope. One thing you can be sure of is that Rover Crews are all there to develop our members (service to self comes first after all), and whatever your passion is, be it hiking, working with children, surfing, the environment, or your home business, it will find a place in the programme of your new Crew.
On the Western Cape level, we provide plenty of training and development opportunities for all the Crews and their members in the Province.
