Juniors is about having fun, making friends, enjoying lots of activities and trying
new things! Their meetings are crammed full of challenges, games and activities.
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
· Body - fit for fun
· Mind - think and do
· Spirit - God and me
· Community - me and my world
· Creativity - make and do.
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.
Through the many different activities, Juniors will;
· learn about themselves
· get to know people and learn to work together
· explore their community
· personally develop.
