Our aims for the Joey Mob are:

  • To have fun in a safe and structured environment;
  • To be introduced to the world of Scouting and learn about where it all began;
  • To begin to develop a sense of belonging to a structured social group outside school and sport.

Typical Activities

Joeys are the young ones of the Scouting family and as such they are looked after in a manner that one would expect. At 1st East Ryde, our Joeys typical weekly meeting is divided into 3 - 4 different activities in no particular order.

  • Stories - Our Leaders will tell stories about Baden Powell (the founder of the Scouting movement) and the interesting life he had; Aboriginal stories and stories about our wonderful country, Australia; and simple fictional stories with a moral message and/or audience participation.
  • Games - There are literally hundreds of different games our Leaders know and teach our children to play. Most have a Scouting connection that actually teaches while they are played while others are simply for fun. They are generally of a non-competitive nature.
  • Art & Craft - Joeys often gather around a table and do various sorts of craft usually related to an Australia theme. They might make an Australian native animal out of assorted craft material or do some special creative task related to the theme of the meeting.
  • Community Services - Although they are young, along with our Leaders our Joeys attend our local ANZAC Day Ceremonies and participate in community activities such as 'Clean up Australia Day'.
  • Outings and Sleepovers - As part of our theme each term we often arrange a weekend outings, attend Joey district and regional functions with other Joey Scout Mobs or hold a Mob Holiday in which each Joey scout and their parent or carer stays overnight at a suitable venue such as a conference centre with cabin or domitory accommodation for sleeping.
