You work alongside adults, rather than being told what to do by them, and you draw on their experiences and contacts to get the best out of your program that you design to suit your needs.

You belong to a group of young people your own age, about 15 of you in a Unit. You run your own affairs through a Unit Council. You speak out for your own viewpoint and share the decisions, help make the plans and follow them through.

The action and adventure a Venturer Scout experiences doesn't just develop your physical skills. It also prepares you to meet challenges, to deal with new situations, and to gain independence.

The Venturer motto is "Look Wide"

Rovers

Commences between the age of 17 and 18 years old.  They finish by their 26th birthday with a mystical goodbye of being given the ""boot"

Rovers are the section of the Scout Movement open to all young men and women aged between 17 and 26 years. Anyone can become a Rover - there's no need to have had any previous involvement with Scouting or any prior outdoor activities experience.

A Crew's activities are planned and run by the Rovers themselves, and there is plenty of opportunity to develop personal abilities, and learn new skills. A Rover may become involved in organising a simple weekend away for just several people, a major event involving thousands of participants or anything in between!

The Rover motto is a simple one - "Service". Rovering helps develop leadership abilities and an appreciation of the value of helping other people, through service activities, both within Scouting and the wider community.
