What are Joey's?

Joey Scouts are boys and girls aged 6 or 7.

This Section provides an introduction to Scouting through a wide range of enjoyable activities.

Joey Scouts are taught about sharing, about nature and about the world around them. Joey Scouts are given a sense of belonging and learn ways for creative expression. Most importantly, Joey Scouts are taught to jump in and help.

The Joey Scout theme is: 'Help other people' (H.O.P.) 

The Joey Scouts form what is called a Mob that is made up of no more than 20 children. The Mob can then be broken into small groups using an ad-hoc approach, as there are no permanent structures as in other Sections. 

Leaders are not referred to as Mr or Mrs but names from the friends of the forest in the Australian bush or Aboriginal names, for example Brolga, Bilby and Wombat.
