Rovers is for males and females aged 18 to 26 who love socialising, challenging themselves, and seizing once-in-a-lifetime opportunities!
Life as a Rover
Life after school can be isolating for most young adults, but not for Rovers! Rovers are a group of mates who believe in experiencing life to its fullest and seizing opportunities. Joining a Rover Crew could be one of the most important decisions in your life. It offers opportunities to make new friends, have fun, experience once-in-a-lifetime adventures, and have unforgettable social experiences while you work with your fellow Rovers to develop your leadership and organisational skills. Rovers personalise their programs to suit their members and each Crew are fully independent and responsible for managing their own groups, projects and campsites. As a Rover, be prepared to expect the unexpected.
Rovers are organised into Crews which vary in size from a handful of members to twenty or more. Most Crews meet weekly to enjoy social activities, fun, adventure, and once-in-a-life-time experiences. Rovers are independent and resourceful so every Crew tailors its own activities to the requirements of its members. Each Crew is also responsible for setting its own entry requirements and program goals. A true Rover strives to serve the community, make life-long friends, and seize every available opportunity.

“I’ve always loved exploring the outdoors and challenging myself, so I decided to give Rovers a go. Not only have I made lifelong friends but I’ve been given so many opportunities to challenge myself, serve the community, and experience things that most people never get the chance to do.”
