Life as a Joey Scout
Life as a Joey Scout is full of discovery and excitement! As a Joey Scout you’ll be part of a Mob which is full of energetic kids just like you. You’ll have a trained Joey Scout Leader who will look after you and plan fantastic activities for you and your Mob.

Joey Scout Meetings
Joey Scout Mobs usually meet once a week at their local Scout or community hall. The trained Joey Scout Leader and their assistants are in charge of ensuring that their Joey’s are participating in activities that not only entertain them, but also develop their skills.
The meetings are a great chance for everyone to see each other and participate in fun activities that improve the child’s physical and mental abilities. At the end of every meeting Joey Leaders ensure that their Joey Scouts go home having learnt something exciting and new.
Joey Scout Uniforms
The uniform for Joey Scouts consists of a blue shirt with tan sleeves and collar.
They also wear the Queensland maroon scarf.
Joey Scout Award Scheme
There is no award scheme for Joey Scouts however there are several participation challenge badges available that Joeys can earn as a Mob. These badges are built into the weekly programs, and cover special activities including:
- ★ A Buddy Scheme with another Mob
- ★ Care and Share activities
- ★ Environmental activities
- ★ Adventure Challenge
Promise Challenge Badge: This is available to older Joey Scouts (must be at least 7 years old to undertake the challenge), is earned on an individual basis, and can be worn on the Cub Scout Uniform until the Grey Wolf Award (the highest Cub Scout award) is achieved.
The aim of this challenge is to allow older Joey Scouts to gain a greater understanding of the Scout Promise and Law, to learn about Scouting's Founder, Lord Robert Baden-Powell, and to discover the history of Scouting.
The challenge requires the Joey Scout to complete certain elements, such as research and discussion with their parents and Leaders, away from the Mob meetings. The Joey will also be required to give a presentation to the Mob on completion of the task.
