Rover Scouting is for young adults who are 18 to 26 years old. This is the most senior Section of the five Scouts Canada Sections. Rover Scouting helps with the transition from adolescence to adulthood and supports young adults with their integration into adult society. The challenges for young adults of this age are many, including figuring out what they want to do with their lives, doing well in school, getting a job and being successful at it, navigating relationships, transitioning into adult life and responsibilities, and seeking to make an impact in society. Rover Scouts provides young adults with a program and a support system to help them achieve their personal goals within groups of like-minded individuals.
Crew Scouters were called “Advisors” in the past, and this remains your role as a Crew Scouter facilitating the Canadian Path program. Provide helpful advice to your Crew, and give the Rovers every opportunity to lead and to learn by doing.
