There is no fee to join the Rover Scout program.
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.
The Rover Scout program is the last one in the whole progression of Sections, all working towards the same mission: “To help develop well-rounded youth, better prepared for success in the world.” The symbolic framework of “Paddle Your Own Canoe” reminds Rover Scouts of the challenges they face in young adulthood, and the abilities they have to help them through the journey of these early adult years.
The use of a canoe as a symbol also reflects Scouting’s commitment to the outdoors. Canoeing is an activity most Scouts have participated in at some point through their Scouting journey. The image of the shared experience of canoeing speaks of the need for Rover Scouts to work together in order to navigate the sometimes challenging waters of their lives
