Promise Challenge

The aim of this challenge is to allow the older Joey Scouts to gain a greater understanding of the Promise and Law and to learn about our founder, Lord Baden-Powell (BP), and the history of Scouting.

Joey Scouts must reach the age of 7.5yrs before they commence work on this challenge.

Joey – Cubs Link BadgeAwarded to the Joey Scout after successfully completing the linking program into cubs.

 Scouting is not an abstruse or difficult science: rather it is a jolly game if you take it in the right light. In the same time it is educative, and (like Mercy) it is apt to benefit him that giveth as well as him that receives. – Robert Baden-Powell

Mob Participation Scheme

Adventure Challenge

The Adventure Challenge is designed to broaden each Joey Scout’s life experience in the wider world. This is achieved through participation in activities to places not normally visited by your mob.

Buddy Scheme

Joey Scout Mobs can get together, share activities and have great fun. One Mob visits the other, who then returns the visit. Special activities are held when Mobs visit. Later, this could progress to sharing an outdoor activity, sleepover or Mob holiday. You can have a ‘virtual’ Mob buddy scheme by using the Internet.


Care & Sharing

This activity may be run by your branch to develop the Joey Scout an understanding of Caring and Sharing and to add the Scouting agenda to the local community. Great publicity opportunities are provided. Each Mob plans and runs programs for one month that focuses on caring and sharing. In the Greater Western Sydney region November is care and share month. As a highlight, a special deed is done for the local community. Badges and certificates are available for this special activity.

 Environment Challenge

As an integral part of its overall program the Scout Association aims to assist all its members to:

  1. Develop an appreciation and respect for the natural environment.
  2. Gain knowledge of Australian plants, animals and basic ecological principles (especially as they relate to conservation practises).
  3. Develop a sense of responsibility in behaviour and action.
