Is your child between the ages of 5.5 (attending school) and 8? Yes! Well, come have some fun at Joeys.
Hampton Park Joeys meet: FRIDAY NIGHTS from 5pm to 6.15pm.
Our Joey Leader is Alison (Bilby) along with John (Wombat), Adrian (Dingo) and Ray (Croc) plus our adult helpers.
Joey Scouts is the first Section of Scouts, for boys and girls aged 5 & half (attending school) to 8. The emphasis is on fun and friendship and a gentle introduction to a world of challenges and adventure.
It’s more than school, as it extends each child’s understanding of the world around them. The programs in Joey Scouts emphasise co-operation and participatory learning.
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. Every activity is designed to ensure that the Joey Scout goes home happy and fulfilled from their time as part of the Mob. It’s for active boys and girls who like having fun and making friends.
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 zoo and visitors to their meetings create more excitement. Joey Scouts go on adventurous activities and face challenges in a safe, non-threatening way with the support of Leaders and their Mob.
Joey Scouts can go on overnight camps or sleepovers with their Mob and sometimes all the Joeys in the state get together at events such as Joey Leap and Joey Sleepover. They wear the Joey Scout Uniform so everyone knows they are Joey Scouts. More than anything, Joey Scouts is about having fun!
Dad & Mum: you're most welcome to sit and watch for the first few sessions, (if you need to go, that’s fine too). We encourage independence so please feel free to trust us with your precious little Joey too. Just remember, any Joey outing before registration with Scouts WA will need one of you to come along as we have a one to one policy when we venture outside of our hall.
