The Joey section is the latest addition at 1st Beaumaris Sea Scouts. We are very proud of our new little Joeys who have adjusted so well to Scout life since their investiture in July 2019 .

 

Joey Scouts is the first section of Scouts for young people aged 5 to 7, and it’s all about discovery and excitement!

 

Joey Scouts are encouraged to express themselves creatively, through games, stories and craft activities. From building monsters and spaceships from scrap items, to growing plants from seedlings and singing songs together, all Joey Scouts develop a strong sense of belonging and an understanding of the world around them.

Joey Scouts is often the first chance for young children to have a real adventure, like their first abseil, a visit to the local fire station, or even their first overnight camp! For some, belonging to Joey Scouts provides an opportunity to mix with a new group of people, developing their confidence and ability to make new friends. Even from 5 years of age, Scouts begins to show young people how to lead by giving them the chance to play an active role in their program. They discuss the activities that Joey Scouts would like to do, and provide guidance that will enable a degree of independence and teamwork.

A trained Joey Scout Leader guides a Joey Scout Unit. The safety of all Joey Scouts is very important, which is why there are always leaders on hand during all activities.
