The core age range of Juniors is from 8 – 11 years, usually starting in the school year following their 8th birthday

 

The programme

This age group has its own programme called Juniors based on six areas; Active, Into the bible, Creative, Learning, Adventurous and Involved. The programme provides challenges, adventure and opportunities to learn and grow. The fun and engaging programme enables the children to work in a team and take more responsibility. Juniors also get the opportunity to go on camps and residential trips, and for some this will be their first night from home. Throughout their time in the Junior Section, children can gain badges and recognition for their participation in the programme

The Uniform

Children in the Junior Section wear a core uniform of a blue polo shirt and royal blue sweatshirt. On some occasions members will wear school trousers and footwear as part of the uniform, but check with your local group.

Safe & Caring

All our adult volunteers undertake a disclosure ( criminal records ) check as part of their registration with The Boys’ Brigade, and are trained to provide a safe and caring environment for all children.

What it costs

Most groups charge a subscription which may be collected weekly, termly or annually and will usually be around £1 – £2 per week. This said, we don’t want any child to miss out because of cost, so if you have any concerns about finance please speak to a Leader in the local group in confidence about this.

When do they meet?

The Junior Section at the 1st Witney meets on Thursday evening between 6.30pm – 8.00pm.
