Carlton Scout Group

Carlton is one of Melbourne’s largest and most diverse Rover Crews, and the closest to the Melbourne CBD - only two minutes from tram routes 1 and 8! Carlton Rovers are a fun and cheerful bunch with strong Scouting spirit and a commitment to making everyone feel welcome. Our Crew is all about supporting Rovers do whatever it is they want to do in Scouting: some are keen hikers, paddlers, skiers, and campers; many are committed to earning their Baden-Powell Scout Award; and many more give service as Leaders, on a range of Scout and Rover committees at a state and national level, and as volunteers for community organisations. The best part about being a Carlton Rover is that you’ll always be experiencing and trying new things—every member brings something fun and unique to our program!
