Scouting, Rovers, And Our Event
Scouting in Australia provides fun youth development activities, building resilient and confident children, adolescents, and young adults aged 5 to 25 in the Joey Scout, Cub Scout, Scout, Venturer Scout and Rover Scout sections. Scouts is also one of the biggest educational bodies outside of school, providing kids and adults with access to learning new life skills.
Rover Scouts, the oldest of the youth sections of Scouting, welcome young adults from 18 to 25 years of age. A group of Rovers is known as a “Unit” and each Rover Unit is different, consisting of anywhere from a handful of members to 50 or more. The defining feature of Rovers is that they run their own governance and programs, making for a unique experience for each Rover, lead by passion and initiative. Rovers offers a supportive environment for young adults to challenge themselves, as well as support their community through service.
A Moot is a gathering of Rovers, and can happen on a State, National, or even International scale. Apple Isle Moot (or AIM for short) is a National Event being hosted by Rover Scouts Tasmania. And Rovers run the show! Everything from early planning and development, to running the event on the day is organised by Rovers, for Rovers. We will be working with local companies and experts to provide the best experience for participants and staff.
AIM will have a great focus on the outdoors and uniquely Tasmanian experiences, including our history, culture, food and drink, fauna, and flora. We also want to be a positive impact on the scouting and local community, aiming to be a waste-conscious event with a heavy focus on local talent and products.
