When do we meet?
The Anchors and Juniors Section meets on a Friday evening between 6:30pm and 7:30pm.
What do we do?
Anchors and Juniors aged between 5 and 11 have fun! Their meetings are crammed full of challenges, games and activities, usually ones that they themselves have suggested. There are hundreds of activities catering for just about every possible interest. At the same time we try to encourage them to explore other new interests. There is loads of variety and little chance of becoming bored!
The award program is specifically designed to encourage a child to look beyond themselves. Many are interested in one type of activity - perhaps sports, or natural history. Our special program provides for such interests and at the same time gently urges them to try others of a different type. This provides a balanced all round program - which includes spiritual and social input, as well as physical and adventure activities in 5 different program zones...
- Body - fit for fun
- Mind - think and do
- Spirit - God and me
- Community - me and my world
- Creativity - make and do
Anchors and Juniors will also get to go on trips and days out, to places like the zoo, theme parks etc.
Anchors and Juniors is about...
- having fun

- trying new things
Through the many different activities, Anchors and Juniors will...
- learn about themselves
- get to know people and learn to work together
- explore their community

Why Anchors or Juniors?
Anchors and Juniors are developing rapidly. Between the ages of 5 and 11, there are big changes in a child's mental, emotional, social and physical development. However, all children are different and have a variety of needs. The relationships we form with children at this age can be important in assisting them to achieve a sound sense of personal and group identity.
