Joey Scouts (Age: 5.5 to 8) Start the Scouting Journey through Challengers and Adventure in the Outdoors.
As Joey Scouts, we work together, and are part of a patrol, to complete fun and interactive hands on tasks.
Having these patrols when we go on adventures and activities allows for
everything to be easier to complet, because we work as a team.
A Joey Unit is made up of a goup of Youth Members and their Section Leaders. It is the role of the Leaders to organise the Unit Councils to plan, with the Joey’s, what activities the section will run each term.
Joey Scouts that are on the Unit Council can will be involved in planning, this will happen by talk with leaders and brainstorm activities. This allows for the Leaders to know that all members of the Unit Council are happy with the chosen activities.
Joeys participate in the Scouts Australia Awards Parthway. This involves the use of the Special Interest Area during the section, and the Outdoor Adventure Skills Parthway that follows the Youth Member through their Scouting Journey.
The Special Interest Areas (SIAs) consist of:
• Adventure & Sport
• Arts & Literature
• Creating a Better World
• Growth & Development
• STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) & Innovation
The Outdoor Adventure Skills (OASs) Pathway consist of:
• 3 Core: Bushcraft, Bushwalking and Camping
• 3 Land: Alpine, Cycling and Vertical
• 3 Water: Aquadics, Boating and Paddling
During their time in Joeys, all Joeys will be working their way towards their Peak Award. This Peak Award for the Joey Section is known as the Joey Scout Challenge Badge.
