Joeys

Joey Scouts Ages 6 to 7

For boys and girls between the ages of 6 and 7 

Joey Scouts is the first Section of Scouts, for boys and girls aged 6 – 7. The emphasis is on fun and friendship
and a gentle introduction to a world of challenges and adventures through Scouting.

A trained Joey Scout Leader guides a Joey Mob of up to 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 childs understanding of the world
around them. Joeys learn how to recognise native birds and animals and develop an understanding of the
impact of our modern world on the environment.

Joey Scouts are encouraged to express themselves creatively, through games, stories and craft activities.
Building monsters and spaceships from scrap items, growing plants from seedlings or singing songs together
all develop a strong sense of belonging.

Joeys are taught to jump in and help other people and to share with their friends. They wear a special scarf and
shirt so everyone knows they are Joey Scouts.

They enjoy visits to special places such as the local fire station or the zoo and visitors to their meetings create
more excitement.

Joey Scouts usually meet once a week. The Joey Scouts Leader, who undertakes special training, may be a parent of one of the Joeys and will have an assistant leader to help them. Joeys, as part of Scouts Australia, is a multicultural, multi-faith organisation, which focuses on the development of the whole child as a member of our society.

More than anything, Joeys is about having fun!

Every activity is designed to ensure that the Joey Scout goes home happy and fulfilled from their time as part of
the Mob. It’s for active boys and girls who like having fun and making friends.

Joey Scouts meet within the district at Selby and Emerald. Our mob is open to Boys and Girls between the ages of 6 and 7.
