Rovers are made up of young people who are at least 18 years of age and have not turned 27. Just like Venturers, Rovers are constantly seeking to challenge themselves while providing service to their community.
Each member of the 6th Richmond Hill Rover Crew is also a leader for either one of Beavers, Cubs, Troop or Venturers sections. They provide service to our community by becoming leaders to help encourage youth towards developing themselves. A major part of the Rover program is to encourage young people to develop personal goals. Personal goals for Rovers are focused upon these 6 activity areas:
- Environment & outdoors
- Active & healthy living
- Creative expression
- Beliefs &; values
You can read more about the 6 activity areas on the Scouts Canada website here.
Personal goals are integrated with the crew as much as possible through activities and services. Personal development is built through a mentorship. Throughout the program, our Rovers work towards giving back to the community, completing their personal goals, and obtaining the Canadian Rover Scout Award.
As a Crew and Group, we work together towards creating an awesome Scouting program by striving for the Program Quality Standards.

Rovers hold meetings once a month to plan and discuss upcoming activities. However, due to the nature of Crew member's schedules, meetings are typically held bi-monthly. Otherwise, planning may be done in email, phone, or video conversations, in lieu of face to face meetings. There is no set meeting location for the Rover Crew, as there is no set meeting schedule for the Crew.
