The Junior Section
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!
Many of these activites include playing team games, solving puzzles, arts and crafts and many more. Similar to the anchors, they also wear a uniform involving a light blue jumper, blue polo shirt, trousers and shoes. They are inspected and rewards are given to the junior that looks the smartest.
The juniors also have a badge system, where they gain badges through achievement classes. These classes aim at providing skills which will help them manage challenging situations.

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.
