Be prepared for adventure

Discover adventure

Joey Scouts is the first age section of Scouts, and it is for children aged five to seven years. The program challenges Joey Scouts to discover all kinds of new adventures. Ideally, Joey Scouts progress to Cub Scouts after their eighth birthday.

Joey Scouts are:

  • discovering the world around them
  • developing friendships
  • experiencing greater interactive experiences
  • physically active
  • using broad imagination and play

In the program, Joey Scouts:

  • discover what challenge means for them
  • explore the world around them
  • start to be active in the community
  • share new adventures with others
  • start to develop outdoor skills
  • discover what teamwork means
  • begin to learn how to lead activities
  • participate in a Unit Council, supported by adults

The Joey Scout Challenge Award is the peak award in the Joey Scouts age section.
