    Developing well-rounded youth, better prepared for success in the world.

    Through our Plan-Do-Review method, Rover Scouts are empowered to learn by doing. With Scouts Canada’s Youth-led programming, Rovers put leadership and teamwork into play by planning their activities with the guidance of a mentor. The great Scouting adventure allows them to explore new things, share ideas, learn new skills and create new paths.

    Rover Scouts is filled with a little bit of everything and plenty of opportunities for youth to personally develop in areas including like social, physical, intellectual, character, emotional and spiritual.
