Rover Crew

We recenly re-formed the 1st Caringbah Rover Scout Crew so are currently accepting new members who are ready to follow the tradition of our other sections and embark on an amazing journey of adventure, leadership and service.

Rover Scouts are for young men and women aged 18 to 25 years.

Rovers is a do-it-yourself mix of fun, adventure and personal challenge that will bring you together with other young adults who feel the same way.

At 1st Caringbah, we focus on getting into real adventure and valuable service to others so you may find yourself exploring Australia’s wilderness, building a community centre in Africa, helping the disabled try surfing, camping above the snowline or diving on coral reefs. You could be abseiling into a limestone cave or climbing a sheer rock face. Perhaps you’ll be learning canyoning, windsurfing, white water kayaking. kitesurfing or ride your mountain bike across real mountains. This is all possible with 1st Caringbah Rovers.
