Joey Scouts have fun!
Every activity that the Joey Scouts do is designed to enhance their physical, intellectual, spiritual, and social development and is based on the Joey Scout motto and the Scout Law.
These activities are so much fun that the Joey Scouts don’t even know that they are learning!
Activities that a Joey Mob might do include:
Games: Learning about teamwork, leadership and co-operation while developing gross motor skills.
Outdoor Activities: such as bushwalking or a visit to the park get the Joey Scouts outdoors and learning skills such as identifying native animals or navigation by compass. Turn that into a pirate treasure hunt and it’s tailor made for the age group!
Environmental activities: Getting out and learning about our environment and how even the smallest Joey Scout can make a difference. Branch or state run activities such as Riverpark Rescue can be fun and educational for the whole family.
Camping: Get outdoors into the real world and explore! Spending time with the other Joey Scouts in a bunkhouse or local Scout Hall bonds the whole Mob as well as providing special time with parents or caregivers.
Acting and presenting: Teaches confidence and creativity and encourages kids to come out of their shell.
Craft activities: making things such as a diorama of a Bilby’s habitat not only reinforces the lessons learned about Bilbies and their habitat but encourages creativity and helps to refine fine motor skills
