Juniors Section

What is Juniors?

Juniors is our second section and is for children aged between 8 and 11.

Please Note: Ages for joining vary from group to group, please check with your local group.

What do they do?

Juniors have fun! Their meetings are crammed full of challenges, games and activities, usually ones that they themselves have suggested. There are hundreds of activities catering for just about every possible interest. At the same time we try to encourage them to explore other new interests. There is loads of variety and little chance of becoming bored!

The award programme is specifically designed to encourage a child to look beyond themselves. Many are interested in one type of activity - perhaps sports, or natural history. Our special programme provides for such interests and at the same time gently urges them to try others of a different type.This provides a balanced all round programme - which includes spiritual and social input, as well as physical and adventure activities in 5 different programme zones . . .

Juniors will also get to go on trips and days out, to places like the zoo, theme parks or a farm. As well as possibly going on a weekend camp or holiday that is often the highlight of the year.

Juniors is about . . .

  • having fun
  • making friends
  • enjoying lots of activities
  • trying new things

Through the many different activities, Juniors will . . .

  • learn about themselves
  • get to know people and learn to work together
  • explore their community
  • personally develop


What else do I need to know?

Juniors have a special uniform that they can wear. As everyone wears the same thing they feel as though they belong. However nobody is excluded because they do not have the right clothes.

How long do they meet for?

Juniors offers a full and varied programme, typically lasting 1½ hours with a few if any individual activities lasting more than ten minutes. The weekly section meeting would usually be finished between 8.00 and 8.30 pm.

Why Juniors?

Juniors are developing rapidly. Between the ages of 8 and 11, there are big changes in a child's mental, emotional, social and physical development. However, all children are different and have a variety of needs. The relationships we form with children at this age can be important in assisting them to achieve a sound sense of personal and group identity.
