How To Use This Handbook

This Handbook is unlike any other Rover Handbook in the world. It is designed so that every Crew may customize their own. This Handbook holds only the requirements for each level of the program. The meat of the book, the information on how to do these requirements, is up to you and your Crew to get.

The Handbook is designed to fit into a three ring binder. That way you and the Crew can add information on the requirements as you learn new skills. Not every Crew learns or teaches the same way. What works in one state may not work other parts of this great land. This method will allow your Crew some leeway in the way items are taught, and it will allow you to build your own handbook as you progress through the Rover Scout program.

The requirements in this Handbook may be modified by your Rover Skipper to make allowances for unavoidable variances in both Youth and the Environment involved.
