Joey Scout Uniform
As part of the world wide Scout Movement Joey Scouts have their own uniform too!
All members of Scouts in Australia have the same navy blue uniform shirt, with the only difference being the change in colour on the sleeves and collar.
Joey Scouts Uniform shirts have the tan highlight on the collar and sleeves.
All sections wear a scarf but different States, Districts and Groups may have different scarves or have a special woggle for you to wear, your Joey Scout Leader will let you know what your Mob wears and how to get one.
The uniform may be worn before the Joey Scout is "invested" or becomes a Member but the scarf and woggle will be presented to them at their ceremony and cannot be worn until then.
For formal occasions you will be required to wear tan trousers, but your Joey leader will let you know if, and when, they are required.
Appropriate footwear is needed for fun, adventure and games, sneakers or sand shoes are good, bare feet and thongs are not allowed.
Joey Scouts are sun smart and will need to wear a bucket hat or something similar, Scout hats are available from the Scout Outdoor Centre but any appropriate hat will do unless it's a formal occasion.
For most meetings at your Scout Hall and excursions the uniform will be worn and your Joey Leader will let you know if there are activities, such as one where you might get dirty, where you will wear "mufti" or casual clothes.
The Joey Scout badges that go on the uniform such as the World Scout badge, Group and District badges are usually presented at their investiture ceremony, except for the Joey Scout Challenge badges which are earned, as well as activity or special occasion badges that are usually for sewing onto a badge blanket.
