Joey Fun Day
Joey days are for Joeys and their leaders. Cubs can come out on any canoe day or pirate boat and raft day. If you are a leader with a Cub in your care for the day this is ok.
Scouts, Rovers, Venturers can be drafted in as volunteers for the day.
We are looking for specialist leaders to run section specific days with us… We have a Specialist Joey Leader and Cub Leader and these days are quickly taken up with Joeys… Doesn’t have to be a leader attached to brownsea…
We run activities all year round at Brownsea. Winter can be a more stable for weather. Less likely to have a thunderstorm.
All of the dates are in the Calendar.
Activities start at 8am and finish up at 3pm.
Start and Finish times include Safety Briefing, Getting Kitted out and wash down/ putting everything away.
