What is the “Junior Section”?

The Junior Section is for children ages 8 to 11. As the next Section up from the Anchors, children in the Juniors will continue in personal development.
The primary focus for this Section is on ensuring that all the learning and development that takes place is a result of fun filled activities.
Please Note: Ages for joining may vary from group to group. Please check with your local group for further details

Uniform

Members of the Junior Section wear a special uniform that sets them apart from other Sections. This is a Royal Blue Polo Shirt, with a Royal Blue Sweatshirt along with their school trousers and shoes. An armband is worn on their right arm with any badges on that they have been awarded throughout their time in the Junior Section.
Uniform plays an important part within the Boys’ Brigade, as this ensure that all members feel they are all part of one single organisation

Meetings

Meetings are held on a weekly basis usually starting around 6 and finishing between 7.30pm and 8pm, however check our companies tab for your nearest company and more accurate times
 

Recognising Achievement

Completion of the Anchor Section implies that the children are ready to take the next step towards personal development, which is the Juniors’ Section.

Their meetings are loaded with challenges, games and activities and at the same time we encourage them to explore new interests through a varied programme of badge work areas which include.

  • Get Active
  • Get Adventurous
  • Get Creative
  • Get Into The Bible
  • Get Involved
  • Get Learning

By completing a number of activities in each of the areas above the Juniors will gain their badges of Membership, Bronze, Silver and Gold. We also recognise a member’s loyalty to the company by awarding a service badge for their years within the company.

Juniors also get the opportunities to go on a weekend camp or holiday, which brings together everything they have learnt and they can also gain awards for the nights away they have gone on.
