Joey Scouts are boys and girls between the ages of 6-8, making a group called a Joey Mob with a typical maximum of 20 children. The section provides an introduction to scouting through a wide range of enjoyable activities. The activities are aimed at helping the Joey Scouts learn about themselves, nature, helping others and finding fun in accordance with the Joey Scout theme.
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.
Although 2nd Gordon Scout Group has one of the most complete succession of sections in our region (Cubs, Scouts, Venturers, and Rovers), we are inviting interested parents and adults whether employed, semi-retired, or retired from full-time employment to join our leadership team to kick start the 2nd Gordon Joey Mob. No intial experience is required. If you would like to make an enquiry, please click on the Contact Us tab.
