There are two matinees scheduled for Saturday 2nd July at 11.00 am

(Joey/Cub Scout) and 2.30pm and one matinee on Saturday 9th July 2016 at 1.00 pm.


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:

Minute Challenge Minute Challenge
 Each Joey Scout lies on the floor face down, puts his hands on the floor, and then walks up to his hands. This is followed by lying back down


Joey Scouts walk heel to toe. How far can they walk in a minute? How many steps can they take in a minute?


Use a line on the floor, masking tape about a metre apart, or table — Joey Scouts flick a button or coin and see how close they can get it to the tape or edge. How many handshakes can they do in the time given? Let them do it with a partner, group, or the whole Mob.
