to help other people at all times,

and to carry out the spirit of the Scout Law.

The Rover Scout Law:

A Scout is helpful and trustworthy,

kind and cheerful, considerate and clean,

wise in the use of all resources.

The Rover Scout Motto:

Go beyond.

The Rover Program – Overview

The Rover Scout program provides members with opportunities for ongoing self-discovery through adventure. By trying new things in each of the Program Areas, Rover Scouts explore how they can fit in as members of their community. The symbolic framework of “Paddle Your Own Canoe” reminds Rover Scouts of the challenges they face in young adulthood, and the abilities they have to help them through the journey of these early adult years.

The Personal Development Plan is a general framework to guide the Rover Scout in developing his or her objectives with the support of a mentor. During the course of a Rover Scout’s time in the program, he or she will complete several PDP’s with either the same mentor or different mentors. Usually, at least three PDP’s (three to six months in duration) are completed prior to the Portage (a Rover’s departure from Scouting as a youth member) or the beginning of work for the Canadian Rover Scout Award.

The Rover Scout and mentor discuss what a Rover Scout has in terms of responsibilities, obligations and demands, as well as interests and aspirations. Out of these discussions, goals are set for the coming months.

The Rover program at 144 Lake Bonavista Sea Scouts is run by Mr J.F. Forget and if you have someone interested in joining our program, please contact us via the online form.
