The core age range of Juniors Section is for boys from 8 to 11 years, usually starting in the school year following their 8th birthday.
This age group has its own programme called Juniors based on five areas; body, mind, spirit, community and creativity. 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 away from home. Throughout their time in the Juniors Section, children can gain badges and recognition for their participation in the programme.
Boys in the Junior Section wear a core uniform of a blue polo shirt, royal blue sweatshirt, and school trousers and footwear as part of the uniform,. Where do the badges go? You can find a diagram showing the positions of badges for this age group here.

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.
