Secret Harbour Joeys

further information


Community, Youth

Secret Harbour Joeys are part of the Secret Harbour Scout Group, of the Western Australian branch of Scouts Australia.

Joey Scouts are boys and girls between the ages of six and seven years of age.

The activities are aimed at helping the Joey Scouts learn about themselves, nature, helping others and finding fun in accordance with the Joey Scout theme ” Helping Other People”.

The Joey Scouts form what is called a Mob that is made up of no more than 20 children. The Mob is led by at least two adult leaders, at least one of which must be female if girls are in or joining the Mob. The Mob can then be broken into small groups using an ad-hoc approach, as there are no permanent structures as in other Sections. Joey Scout helpers are also encouraged and must be at least 15 years. The minimum age for a Joey Scout Leader is 18 years.

Leaders are not referred to as Mr or Mrs but names from the friends of the forest in the Australian bush or Aboriginal names, for example Brolga, Bilby and Wombat.
