‘The aim of Scouting is to contribute to the development of the youth in achieving their full spiritual, intellectual, physical, social, and cultural potential.’

‘If you are aged 18 – 20 then you can become a Rover. Get the Edge. Broaden Your Horizons. Anything is Possible: Explorer Belt, Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, and so much more.’
