Rovers

Men and women 18 to 26 years of age.

The outdoors is an essential part of the Rover program. Rovers often participate in adventurous activities like mountain climbing, or white water rafting.

Rovers also help their local communities by running service activities such as food drives, park clean-ups, and tree plantings.

Rovers meet in a group called a crew. Rovers develop and manage their own program under the mentorship of a respected advisor. Rovers adhere to a promise and motto.

The Rover Promise:
On my honour
I promise that I will do my best
To do my duty to God and the Queen
To help other people at all times,
And to carry out the spirit of the Scout Law.

The Rover Motto:
Service

  • Hello,
    I am the communications director for Sunnyside Acres Urban Forest Park. http://www.sunnysideacres.ca .Please take a few minutes to peruse our website.
    I would like to contact any leaders living in the White Rock South Surrey areas to arrange some tours through our local forest with the troup. I understand there are a number of badges the guys could work towards ie bird watching.
    I would also offer some volunteer opportunities ie our open house on 3 June. I am trying to put together a fun family day where there will be lots of opportunities for the scouts/rovers to volunteer their time. We also have an annual planting/weeding day in Nov.
    If you can provide me with any email addresses or phone numbers of area leaders , or would prefer to give them my email address/phone# 604-536-0605 we can get started on introducing the boys to this outdoor lab, its wildlife and benefits to humans.
    Thank-you for your time. One of our new programs coming soon is an OWL Prowl…an evening stroll through the woods listening and sighting our local owls. Also on the books a birdwatching/listening tour.
    We also have speakers who do group presentations on forestry and living with urban wildlife.
