Joey Scout Jaunt
Wow, what a cracker of a day it was. It was wonderful to see the smiling faces of the leaders, parents, and Joey scouts as they came down to the administration tent for registration. There was enthusiasm everywhere and you could see the Joey Scouts were just itching to start as soon as possible. Walking around the park it was amazing to see the ideas the Joey Scout Leaders had thought off and the wonderful bases they had developed.
Some of the wonderful bases provided included the Heritage Museum (David Tuefel and team), Rope Bridge (Ian Anderson and team), Photo Booth (Performing Arts), Screen Printing (Girl Guides), Climbing Wall and Abseiling Tower (Branch), Banner Making (Woodridge), Raid The Castle (Belmont), Sword Out of The Stone (Caboolture),Guard The Castle (Woodford), Mounted Knight Relay Race (Woodford), Throw Sponges Through Bindi’s Head (Karana), Javelin Throwing Through Poole Circle Noodles (Mount Cotton), Medieval Shields (Victor), Jousting Activity (Narangba), Swords (Wahinda Park), Puppet Show (Moggill), Dragon’s Lair Obstacle (Greenbank), Fair Maiden’s Hats and King’s Crowns (Birkdale), Target Practice (Wavell Heights), etc.
The day’s activities finished with a wonderful campfire performed by Sean and Colleen Giblin, and the cutting of our birthday cake celebrating our 25 years as a section.
I would like to thank everyone for their hard work and dedication in providing such wonderful bases for the Joey Scouts to experience. To the parents, grandparents and relatives thank you for coming and supporting your child/children in this activity.
Keep up the good work everyone, I look forward to Joey Scout Jaunt next year.

There are times when there is a spare moment between a game, a craft, while waiting for the next activity or just before closing parade when you want to keep the Joey Scouts busy, following are some one minute challenges you may wish to try with your Mob:
- Joey Scouts in groups. How many times can they throw a ring over a stick in the minute?
- Balance on one foot for a minute. Challenge them to close their eyes and stay balanced for the minute.
- How many times can Joey Scouts throw a Frisbee back and forth without dropping it for the minute?
- Toss beanbags into a bucket and count how many go in during the minute.
