Ages 6 – 8 yrs  – Your first jump into Scouting



3rd Bathurst Scout Group has 1 Joey Mob meeting once a week at the Scout Hall for approximately 1 hour under the care and supervision of professionally trained Joey Scout Leaders. Parents and helpers are welcome to join in the road to adventure with their Joey Scouts and share many new discoveries.

Joey Scouts is the first Section of Scouts, for boys and girls aged 6 – 8. The emphasis is on fun and friendship and a gentle introduction to a world of challenges and adventures through Scouting.
Joey Scouts are taught to jump in and help other people and to share with their friends. They wear a special scarf and t-shirt so everyone knows they are Joey Scouts.
Joey Scouts do lots of fun stuff – play games, sing songs, make craft from scrap materials, grow plants from seedlings, make friends and go on outings.

They learn the Joey Scout Promise, Law and Motto which are a great introduction to the principles of Scouting.

Joey Scout Promise

I promise to do my best, to love my God and be helpful.

Joey Scout Law

A Joey Scout cares. A Joey Scout shares.

The Joey Scout Motto is HOP Help Other People
