Life as a Joey Scout

Joey Scout Meetings
Joey Scout Mobs usually meet once a week at their local Scout or community hall. The trained Joey Scout Leader and their assistants are in charge of ensuring that their Joey’s are participating in activities that not only entertain them, but also develop their skills.
The meetings are a great chance for everyone to see each other and participate in fun activities that improve the child’s physical and mental abilities. At the end of every meeting Joey Leaders ensure that their Joey Scouts go home having learnt something exciting and new.
“Joey Scouts are extremely energetic so we tailor our programs to meet their high energy levels and their desire to discover the world. It’s our number one priority to ensure that our Joeys learn hands-on skills, make new friends, and have fun!”
