2nd West Kent - Junior Section

Who are the Juniors?

Juniors is our second group in the BB and is for Boys aged between 8 and 11.

What do they do?

Juniors have fun! Our 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!

 

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 programme zones:

 

  • 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.

 

Juniors is about: • having fun • making friends • enjoying lots of activities • trying new things

 

Through the many different activities, Juniors will: • learn about themselves • get to know people and learn to work together • explore their community • personally develop

What else do I need to know?

The Junior Section Boys have a special uniform that they wear every week to encourage a group identity. This can be purchased from us.

 

There is a small cost to be part of BB and for the Junior Section Boys it is just 1 per week. This money goes towards the cost of craft and games equipment.

When do we meet?

Juniors meet on a Thursday evening between 6.45pm and 8.00pm.

 

We have three Church Parades a year and expect all Boys (and their parents, if possible) to attend.

 

Why Juniors?

Juniors are developing rapidly. Between the ages of 8 and 11, there are big changes in a child's mental, emotional, social and physical development. However, all children are different and have a variety of needs. The relationships we form with children at this age can be important in assisting them to achieve a sound sense of personal and group identity.

 

Most importantly . . . Juniors provides opportunities for fun and enjoyment!
