The 1st Blackburn Rover Crew, established in 2018, is a group of young adults ranging from 18-26 years old. The Rover program is all about creating fun and challenging expeditions in which Rovers take responsibility for themselves while still respecting the needs of others. Young adults are prepared for success in the world by developing their knowledge and skill set with the help and support of mentors.
Interested in joining as an Adult Scouter? Scouters provide support and mentorship to the youth. As the program is youth-led, Scouters provide encouragement and guidance using the Plan-Do-Review process, SPICES and program areas. The Scouting programs are not only enjoyable for the youth but for the Scouters as they get to learn and see themselves develop alongside the youth.
