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.
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.
‘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."
