It's your Hop into Scouting!
Our aim is to provide a safe, fun, learning environment for young boys and girls, from 6 to 7 1/2 years old, and to be the very first link in a path to adventure and fulfillment through Scouting.
A trained Joey Scout Leader guides a Joey Scout Mob of up to 20 boys and girls as they learn to share and care for each other in a social environment. Scouting extends each child's understanding of the world around them, by actively encouraging the Joey Scouts' involvement with that world. Joey Scouts experience the world around themselves, by doing, rather than just being taught. They develop an understanding of the impact of our modern world, and themselves, on the environment.
Joey Scouts are encouraged to express themselves creatively, through games, stories and craft activities. Building monsters and spaceships from scrap items, growing plants from seedlings or singing songs together all develop a strong sense of belonging.
Joey Scouts are taught to jump in and help other people and to share with their friends. They enjoy visits to special places such as the local fire station or the zoo and visitors to their meetings create more excitement.
Joey Scouts meet once a week on Wednesday evenings from 6.00pm. It is a requirement of Joeys that we also have a rostered parent at the hall each week.Click here to get in touch!

People can join Rovers when they are between 17 and 25 years old. Usually they are looking to get involved in the outdoors, making friends for life as well as service to the community and Scouting. Typically Rovers enjoy helping others, having a great time and taking on new challenges. Did we mention fun yet?
Many Rovers have been in Scouting before, this is not a pre-requisite, you do not have to have years of experience in Scouting to fit in, know how to tie knots or put up a tent! You do need to have a "give it a go" attitude and want to be involved with people your own age, be part of the wider community, and have some serious fun along the way.
