Juniors also have their own program based on five areas; body, mind, spirit, community and creativity. The program provides challenges, adventure and opportunities to learn and grow.
Juniors love to:
- do lots of cool stuff with their leaders
- learn lots of new skills
- earn badges to wear
- play great games
- Learn more about God and what He does for them
- go on overnight camps
- attend competitions as an individual or as a team
Juniors have heaps of fun with lots to challenge them and they make great friends along the way. They earn badges which gives them recognition for their participation in the program. Juniors can also attend some Battalion and State Events.
Not all Companies run the same, as the Captain and Leaders will plan their program according to numbers, the interests of the boys and the skills of the leaders.
Juniors wear a uniform that includes navy shorts, navy BB shirt, a light blue tie, cap, socks and black shoes. An armband is worn to show off their badges. Some companies wear a Contemporary uniform, which has a navy BB polo shirt and a peaked cap.
Uniforms can be bought through your group or direct from the BB QLD Uniform Shop. For shoes, they generally wear their school shoes.
You can find where to position badges on the uniform and armband here.
Uniforms can be purchased via a uniform representative at your Company, from the BBQLD Shop online or at the BBQLD Shop at the State Office.
All our adult volunteers hold a current Blue Card and have a current qualification in the Safe Environments Child Safety Program.
All groups set their own costs and the price varies. Many BB companies are registered with the Fair Play Program and vouchers can be issued to qualifying children to cover fees. You will find that belonging to BB will be much cheaper than many other activities. Many churches cover expenses of the BB Company in their budget and some offer subsidies to help boys attend activities.
