Joey Scouts are our youngest members

Joey Scouts commence at 5 years of age and transition to the Cub Scout Section after turning 8 and before turning 9 years of age.

Joey Scouts are: -

  • Discovering the world around them
  • Developing friendships
  • Experiencing greater interactive experiences
  • Physically active
  • Using broad imagination and play

This is the first Section of the Scouting journey.

Joey Scouts meet each week as a Joey Scout Unit, and wear their Section’s uniform shirt, the scarf of their Scout Group, and a woggle to hold their scarf together.

For our youngest members, the Joey Scout program nurtures a deeper understanding of the world around them, with a growing awareness of their surroundings and nature, by getting out and about in the community.

Like all Scouts, Joey Scouts participate in the Achievement Pathway award scheme and are presented with badges to recognise their achievement. 

A Joey Scout can even decide if they would like to achieve their Sections peak award, the Joey Scout Challenge Award, the highest achievement in the Joey Scout Section.

Every two years, Joey Scouts have the opportunity to attend a Kangaree, a massive overnight sleepover with activities and entertainment with hundreds of Joey Scouts from all over the State.
