Joey Scouts is the youngest section of the Scouting movement. For Joey Scouts, life is an exciting adventure. They explore the wider world, stimulate their imagination and develop skills in team work.
Joey Scout Mobs meet once a week for approximately 1 to 1.5 hours under the care and supervision of professionally trained Joey Scout Leaders. Parents and Guardians are welcome to join in the road to adventure with their Joey Scouts and share many new discoveries. Joey Scout activities include:
Cubs is so much fun

Short Camping Trips
Water Activities and Water Safety
Organising and playing team games
Learn practical skills like knots and construction
Going on Outings and Nature Trails
Orienteer and learn to read maps and compasses
The Joey Scout Section provides an introduction to Scouting through a wide range of enjoyable activities. The activities are aimed at helping the Joey Scouts learn about themselves, nature, helping others and finding fun in accordance with the Joey Scout theme " Helping Other People".
