Joey Scouts are boys and girls aged 6 to 8 years old who meet each week, together with trained leaders, for an hour of fun and activities like games, handcrafts, stories, ‘pretend’ adventures, cooking, growing things and songs. These ‘mob’ meetings (as they are called) usually follow a theme, and while having plenty of fun, Joey Scouts learn about themselves, nature, and the world around them.

As the junior section of the Scouting Movement, Joey Scouts also learn how to care and share, look after the environment, do their best and help other people, but best of all they get to make lots of new friends and have heaps of fun. A short simple ceremony is held at the beginning and end of each mob meeting, as well as important occasions like the investing of a new member, and at the ‘going up’ of a Joey Scout into the Cub Section at around his/her 8th birthday.  

Taroona Joey Scouts meet on Monday nights in the Community Cottage.
