The first step in the Rover Training scheme is the Intro to Rovers Seminar. It’s designed to be a part of standard Squire Training, and includes the Intro to Scouting course attended by Leaders at the start of their training.
Intro to Rovers is a great activity to run as a Crew night, especially for new Rover Crews, or Crews undergoing rapid expansion, as it covers everything that you might learn over the first year in Rovering in a few short hours.
The course covers the following areas:
- Aims & Principles of the Scout Association
- Rover Government – Where you fit in and the general responsibilities of Regions, Branches and National
- What Rovers do – including Rover activities & properties
- Baden Powell Scout Award – A brief rundown of what the award is.
- Squire Training & Invested Rovers
- Crew Life
- Service – including the Service Awards available to Victorian Rovers
- Rover Training scheme pathways
- And plenty of chances to ask your questions!!
Intro to Rovers courses are run on Saturday afternoon at both Mudbash and Surfmoot, and at other times by arrangement.
