Rovers in Tasmania . . .

From the Tasmanian Rovers Website:

"Rovers is the section of Scouts Australia open to young men and women aged between 17 and 26 years. Rovers are the oldest Youth Section in the Scouting Movement. Anyone that is willing to take our promise can become a Rover - there's no need to have had any previous involvement with Scouting, or any prior outdoor activities experience.

Rovering opens the door to a world of adventure, excitement, challenge and achievement. You will make loads of friends, participate in service, wild activities that you will remember forever and you'll acquire many skills that will prepare you for life!

Challenging outdoor activities such as bushwalking, rafting, canoeing, sailing, caving, four-wheel driving, rock-climbing, and camping can all form part of a Rover's calendar. Not to mention that social activities such as balls, bush dances, nights out, car rallies, and "Moots" (gatherings of Rovers on a local, national, and sometimes international level) also feature on an active Rover's program.

There are close to 2,600 Rovers throughout Australia. Rovers or their equivalent can also be found in many countries throughout the world, offering the opportunity to make great contacts when travelling and take part in international projects.

A ‘group’ of Rovers that meet together are called a ‘Rover Crew’. Joining a Rover Crew could be one of the most important steps in your life. In Tasmania we have 7 Rover Crews spread out in most of the major population areas. Each Crew is different and chooses the activities that suit its members the most. These activities offer you the opportunity to mix socially, push yourself physically, challenge yourself mentally and develop spiritually. Tasmanian Rovers meet regularly for state moots, which insure that the people you meet and the friends that you make are spread out all over Tasmania."
