Medical Venturers and Rovers

Medical Venturers and Rovers are themed Venturer Scout Companies and Rover Scout Crews that focus on the EMS/paramedic field. Medvents and Medrovers are sponsored by local Emergency Medical Services.

Medvents and Medrovers receive increasingly advanced medical training over the course of the program. Their training is put to good use providing volunteer First Aid support at Scout camps and third-party events.

As with other Venturer Scouts and Rover Scouts, Medvents are 14 to 17 years of age while Medrovers are 18 to 26 years of age.

Many of the Medvents and Medrovers have continued their education in a university or community college paramedicine (or other medical oriented) curriculum and then seek employment as paramedics, firefighters, police officers or nurses. Some have even set their sights higher and are pursuing a career as a physician.

This program has been extremely successful in producing some of the most self assured and competent Canadian citizens in our communities.
