Juniors

Junior Section

The age range of Juniors Section is from 8 to 11 years, with boys usually starting in the school year following their 8th birthday.

The Junior Section is all about having fun, building friendships and learning new things together that challenge and encourage what ever their ability.

What do we do?

We do lots of fun activities and games each week. Craft plays a big part in what we do. We also get to take part in competitions with the other BB companies in the area with things like 5-a-side football, uni-hoc and quizes.

  • Get Active
  • Get Adventurous
  • Get Creative
  • Get into the Bible
  • Get Involved
  • Get Learning

We also have visits to places of interest in our local community such as public services or shops where possible.
The hightlight of our year is the Junior Section weekend where we go away and stay either in a cabin, village hall or activity center. These weekends are always great fun with amazing food and lots of laughter shared.

Awards

Who doesn't like to being given awards? Our programme is structured in a way that everything we do goes towards our achievements. At different times of the year we can be awarded our badges and we have a special celebration awards and display evening at the end of every year where we can show our parents what we have been doing. Upon joining Juniors all boys work towards their Juniors Membership Badge which can be achieved quickly after starting. They can then continue to work towards their main programme badges, which are:

  • Bronze
  • Silver
  • Gold

In addition to these, boys can achieve a project badge for activities that require at least 3 hours work on over the course of the session. One of these badges can be gained each year in the section and are based on the activity areas.
There are other special awards we can gain as well as these such as the 'Make a Difference' award and recognition for introducing friends to come and join.

Uniform

Our uniform consists of a blue Boys' Brigade jumper and polo shirt with grey or black trousers and black shoes. Your school trousers and shoes are perfect. You will also get an armband so that as you gain your badges you wear them on your sleeve.

What does it cost?

Our subs are £15 per term. There is a charge for the uniform which is the cost price from the suppliers, normally £15 to £20 for a jumper and polo shirt. 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. We often have a supply of good quality used uniform available at a cheaper rate.

How do I join

Joining is easy. The best way is to come along and see us one Monday and meet the boys and leaders to see what we do.

You can get in contact with us to let us know or if you have any other questions. We will look forward to seeing you.
