Joey Scouts are boys and girls between the ages of six and seven and a half. This 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". The Joey Scouts form what is called a Mob. Joey Scouts do a wide variety of things in their Section. Some of these include cutting, drawing, colouring, painting, pasting, making musical instruments and singing, flying kites and listening to stories. At this age children need experiences which help them learn to work and play in groups, mix with adults outside home and school environments, develop their physical, intellectual, social and spiritual abilities through active experiences.


Joeys participate in many activities with other Mobs such as

  • Joey World - Statewide gathering of Joeys participating in activites learning about other cultures and the environment
  • Joey Leap - Statewide gathering of Joeys participating in lots of fun activites
  • Joey Sleepover - Overnight sleepover in a hall with other Mobs from the District
  • Joey Campfire - District gathering to sing songs around a campfire
