The Rover program emphasizes service while encouraging young adults (aged 18 to 26) to experience the best of the outdoors, to develop a sense of self-reliance and teamwork, to explore and challenge to do things you wouldn't normally do. It helps them explore vocational opportunities and allows them to participate in a variety of social, spiritual and cultural activities. They challenge themselves by taking part in physical and outdoor activities. It also helps them get an awareness of the needs of the community and the environment. These skills will prepare them for the adventurous Rover program.

Keith Emond, Rod Dotzko, Amy Caldwell and Selena Lam are knighted by the 57th Windsor CrewSee Program History for additional information. Additional Program activities see 1st Whitby Venturer Scout Program

All new Rovers are called Squires once invested and are required to establish a personal quest. Once the quest is completed, the Rover can then be knighted. At 1st Whitby, the knighting can only be done by a knight therefore the crew had to call in the help of the 57th Windsor Crew to conduct the ceremony. This particular ceremony took place on a gazebo in London, Ontario. (Yes, the sword is genuine and an important artifact of the crew.)

To help you develop an idea of your quest, take time to read the following: Quest of Truth.

Rover Discussion Forums on the Web

With Round Tables on the decrease, it is getting harder to keep in touch with other Rovers. Thanks to technology, it is now possible to keep in touch without actually gathering around a roundtable.

Various websites have been created to keep Rovers informed. This is your chance to check out some of the websites from across Canada. Let us know if you are aware of other websites out there. So check out these sites and start meeting Rovers from across Canada.  - resources and calendar for Ontario Rovering Events & News
