Eumemmerring Scout Group is happy to announce we have spaces available for boys and girls aged 5 (from Term 2) to 7 1/2 years of age within our Joey Scout Mob, Joey Scouts is the first level of scouting. Our aim is to provide a safe, fun, learning environment for young girls and boys , from 5 to 7 1/2 years old,
2 trained Joey Scout Leaders guide the Joey Scout Mob of up to 15 boys and girls for an hour a week as they learn to share and care for each other in a social environment. Joey Scouts experience the world around them, by doing, rather than just being taught. They develop an understanding of the impact of our modern world, and themselves, 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.
Joey Scouts are taught to jump in and help other people and to share with their friends. They enjoy visits to special places such as the local fire station or the Melbourne zoo and visitors to their meetings create more excitement. They go on hikes and participate in community events like Clean Up Australia Day. They even have their own Major Event: Kangaree, which is held every 2 years for 6 and 7 year olds.
Joey Scouts wear a Group Scarf and a Joey Scout t-shirt so everyone knows they are Joey Scouts. A Joey Scout Mob is part of a larger Scout Group, so they wear the same scarf as all the older members of that Group - the Cub Scouts, the Scouts, the Venturers, Rovers, and the Leaders, even the committee wears a scarf when out in the community!
