About Black Knight Rovers
The Black Knight Rover Crew is based at the Hope Valley Scout Hall on Barracks Road, Hope Valley, South Australia.
We participate in a range of activities including social, physical and service related activities. A number of annual events include a murder mystery dinner, a caving camp and a Christmas dinner/party. We also regularly participate in assisting in Venturer section events such as Easter Venture and district events. Several of our members hold qualifications in a range outdoor activities such as Rock Climbing, Kayaking, or are leaders within other sections of the Scouting Movement.
A number of crew’s members are also involved in “Gang Shows”, which are variety shows produced entirely by Scouts and Guides. With involvement from onstage to offstage roles, we’re a multi-talented bunch! We encourage active participation within the Crew and other teams within the branch.
Black Knight Rovers is named after the ‘Black Knight’ in the comedy film “Monty Python and the Holy Grail”. Black Knight Rovers is one of the largest crews in South Australia!
We’re based at the Hope Valley Scout Hall (Barracks Road, Hope Valley), sharing a den with the Beefacres Venturer Unit. Our crew meets regularly and has an active program which is updated quarterly.
