Joey Scouts - Discover Adventure

Peak Award - Joey Scout Challenge Award

The Joey Scout Challenge Award is the Section's peak award and may be the final achievement for a youth member in the Joey Scout Section. The Joey Scout Challenge Award brings together the core elements of the Achievement Pathways as well as an Adventurous Journey and a Personal Reflection. 

It's not expected that all Joey Scouts will attempt and complete this award, but all are welcome to 'give it a go'. All members of the Joey Scout Unit, the Unit Council and Joey Scout Leaders will support Joey Scouts through the final steps of the Achievement Pathways.
