The Crew has been a fixture at Camp Opemikon since 1959. The Opemikon Crew is the oldest running Rover Crew in the Voyageur Council, with over 50 years of service to Camp Opemikon.

The Crew does catering for groups that come up to Camp, activities with the groups, maintenance of the camp, life guarding and anything else that needs to be done. The Crew usually has members at Camp on the weekends from September to June.

Rovers are the last youth section of Scouting for youth ages 18 to 26 years old. The motto of Rovers is "Service" and the Crew's service project is Camp Opemikon. Potential members of the Crew are asked to join by current members. After a trial period, if the Crew and the invited member, known as a squire, both agree, the new member is invested into the Crew. Each member of the Crew is expected to come to Camp for at least three weekends during the off-season, not including the annual work weekend.

The Crew has never been paid and continues to volunteer its services to Camp and Scouting. In a typical season over 5,000 service hours are provided to the Camp by members of the Crew.
