Information for Prospective Members

A Warm Welcome To Prospective Members


Aims and Principles

The aim of Scouting is to encourage the physical, intellectual, social, spiritual and emotional development of young people so that they may take a constructive place in society as responsible citizens and as members of the local, national and international communities.

The principles of Scouting, as identified by our Founder Lord Robert Baden-Powell, are that Scouts should serve God, act in consideration of the needs of others and develop and use their abilities to the betterment of themselves, their families, and the community in which they live. The three principles are represented by a Code of Conduct, which characterizes all members of the movement. They are referred to as 'Duty to God', 'Duty to Others' and 'Duty to Self'.

Rovers are aged between 18 and 26 years. The Group does not have a dedicated Rover Crew but the Rovers that are registered with 2TS parade with the Darling Downs Rover Crew.

Rovers are dedicated to fun and adventure, whilst serving the community in the Scouting way. Rovers are the oldest Youth Section in the Scouting Movement. By taking part in the many opportunities available to you as a Rover you will experience fun, fellowship and personal growth. Rovers meet as a Crew and participate in a variety of activities. These activities offer you the opportunity to mix socially, push yourself physically, challenge yourself mentally and develop spiritually. Each Crew is different and chooses the activities that suit its members the most. Joining a Rover Crew could be one of the most importnat steps in your life. It can open doors to new friendships, fun, adventure and some unforgettable experiences while at the same time developing your leadership and organisational skills.

Cost

Each year in March a membership fee is due and paid to Queensland Branch Headquarters.  The current fee is $120.00 for the first child with a reduced amount for subsequent children in the same family.  It covers items such as personal accident insurance and public liability. It is important that membership is current at all time to ensure continuity of cover for your child(ren).

As well as the yearly membership fee a term based Group fee of $50 per child is charged and paid to the Group.  Half of the funds are returned to each section to cover the cost of items such as craft items, learning materials and badges.  The remaining funds are retained by the Group Executive Committee to cover the running cost of the Group e.g. property and contents insurance, rates, electricity, maintenance and leader training fees.

From time to time other activities such as camps, hikes and outing are held that incur a cost. Every effort is made to keep the cost to a minimum.
