In a Crew, Rovers enjoy fun and challenging expeditions with their peers. Driving their personal ambitions with support from a mentor, Rovers are better prepared for success. The world awaits!
1st Glenayre Rovers are leaders and mentors within the group. Our current Rover crew are Scouters to younger youth, but are sometimes able to get out and complete challenging adventures of their own.
Outdoor Adventure Skills
The Outdoor Adventure Skills program has 9 skill pathways: Camping, Trail, Paddling, Aquatic, Emergency Aid, Winter, Vertical, Sailing, and Scoutcraft. Each skill is divided into nine stages with a badge awarded for each stage. The outdoor Adventure skills are progressive from Beavers through to Rovers, youth build on skill development as they move through the different Scout "sections" (Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Venturers, and Rovers.)
You can find out more about the Outdoor Adventure Skills here.
Parents: if you log in to your Scoutstracker account you can mark of skills your youth has completed outside of Scouts, so they get credit!
