I know that from time to time, there are female Venturers who are also
Rangers here too. I don't know how often this happens, but it does.
On the other hand, I know quite a few Quebec Rovers who were in Guiding
and are still involved with that, as well as Rovering. I don't know
how many Rangers (or Cadettes, but I've never seen any around here)
go and join a Rover crew, compared to the number who don't.. it
seems to happen a lot with those Rangers who go to moots and rants,
which are Venturer/Ranger/Rover events.
There don't tend to be many Venturers at these events, though.
(A moot is primarily a Rover camp; Rovers in Canada are 18-26.
A rant is a Ranger camp; Rangers are the section of Guides Canada
