Joey Scouts - The first jump into scouting!
Joey Scouts is the first Section of Scouts, for boys and girls aged 5 - 8. The section focuses on having fun. developing friendships and gently introducing members to the challenges and adventurers found in Scouting. A young person can join the Joey Section at any time provided they are attending school fulltime.
Our trained Joey Scout Leaders guide a Joey Mob of no more than 20 boys and girls, as they learn to share and care for each other in a social environment. It’s more than school as it extends each child’s understanding of the world around them. Joey Scouts learn how to recognise native birds and animals and develop an understanding of the impact of our modern world on the environment. At this age children need experiences which help them learn to work and play in groups, mix with adults outside home and school environments, and develop their physical, intellectual, social and spiritual abilities through active experiences.
