The Junior Section (juniors) is our second section and is for boys and girls aged between 8 and 11 (School Years 4, 5 and 6).
How long do they meet for? The weekly section meeting is held on a Monday evening from 6.30pm to 8.00pm in the BB Centre, Bexleyheath Broadway, between Christ Church and Asda.
What do they do? Juniors 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 programme 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 programme 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 programme . . .
This includes spiritual and social input, as well as physical and adventure activities in 5 different programme zones . . .
Body - fit for fun
Mind - think and do
Spirit - God and me
Community - me and my world
Creativity - make and do

Why Juniors? Juniors are developing rapidly. Between the ages of 8 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.
