Queensland Rovers

Our Rover Scouts never cease to amze us with what they achieve on their BPSA Journey. Let's take a throw back to Georgia's Journey!

BPSA Spotlight
Name: Georgia Sands
Rover Scout Unit: Downlands
Badge: Community Development
For my Community Development Badge, I was the Rover Representative for The Australian Contingent to Roverway 2018. As the Rover Representative I was heavily involved in the organisation of the contingent and helped the CMT communicate with the Rover participants. This involved providing insight to the CMT by sharing opinions over different matters such as programme, promoting the event, from a Rover Scout perspective. While at the same time effectively communicating and collaborating with the other Rover participants.
As a Rover Representatives I was also required to take part in phone conferences and online discussion forums in the months leading up to the event. And required to take part in the ceremonies or specific activities during the Roverway event. Through this amazing experience I was able to network with Rovers Scouts across the world and share our ideas of International Scouting and our goals for the future.

This year's theme is #InThisTogether as every one of us has a role to play when it comes to reconciliation, and in playing our part we collectively build relationships and communities that value Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, histories and cultures.

Learn By Doing

Rover Scouts is open all young adults aged 18-25. It is all about adventure, excitement, challenge and achievement. No previous scouting experience required!

Rovers function in crews. A crew is a small collection of around 6 – 20 Rovers who engage in a self-managed weekly program. Crew members become mates for life!

A Rover Scout calendar may include challenging outdoor activities such as caving, sailing, four-wheel driving, hot-air ballooning and ski-touring. In addition the calendar is full of balls, harbour cruises, motor-sports, etc.
Moots are the pinnacle Rover event. A moot is a social gathering of Rovers from throughout a state, national or international with the focus of a few weeks of fun, adventure and sharing of life experiences. These too are run and managed by Rovers!
