The Ashmore Scout Group does not have an active Rover Crew, however we are now working with the Helensvale Rover Crew,
to provide the continuation from Venturers to Rovers.

A link to the Helensvale Rover Crew website will be made available soon. Information can also be obtained from the Helensvale Rovers Facebook page.

Rover Scouts

Rovers is for males and females aged 18 to 25 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-life-time 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.

Rover Meetings: 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.
