Joey Scouts is the first Section of Scouts for boys and girls aged 5 to 7, and it’s all about discovery and excitement! Joey Scouts are part of a ‘Mob’, led by a Joey Scout Leader.
Joey Scouts are encouraged to express themselves creatively, through games, stories and craft activities. From building monsters and spaceships from scrap items, to growing plants from seedlings and singing songs together, all Joey Scouts develop a strong sense of belonging and an understanding of the world around them.
Joey Scouts learn how to share and care, and help other people. They also learn how to recognise native birds and animals, and develop an understanding of the impact of our modern world on the environment. Some Joey Scouts might even get the chance to have their first sleepover with their Mob, an important and fun ‘first’ for developing independence.
A trained Joey Scout Leader guides a Joey Mob of up to 20 boys and girls. The safety of all Joey Scouts is very important, which is why there are always leaders on hand during all activities.
