Joey Scouts


The Joey Scout section is for boys and girls aged 5 (if they have started school) or 6 years to around 7½ years old (maximum 8 years old), with opportunities for:
  • playing sport, games and doing other activities in a safe & fun way
  • (eg. food, crafts, Special Person’s nights, learning about disabilities or different countries)
  • occasional excursions (eg. visit vet or Charity Warehouse or Old Peoples Home, go swimming or rollerskating), sleepovers or movie nights
  • occasional family or group activities (eg. family camp, Zoo Day, City Trip).
Our Joey Scouts meet on Monday nights from 5.30pm to 6.30pm.

Joey Scouts all wear a uniform which allows members to be identified as part of the group. The Joey Scout program will help Joey Scouts learn about self, nature, helping others and as a result find fun. Joey Scouts will also receive badges through the participation scheme. 

Joey Leaders have either an Australian animal or aboriginal word for an alias name.

We ask each family to help by being a parent helper on 2-4 nights per term.
