2nd Enfield Boys Brigade - Junior Section

Who is it for?Juniors

Juniors is our second section and is for boys aged between 8 and 11.

When do they meet?

The main weekly meeting is on a Monday night (6.15 p.m. - 7.40 p.m.) at Bush Hill Park United Reformed Church, Junction of Main and Third Avenues, Enfield EN1 1DJ

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 - which 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

Juniors will also get to go on trips and days out, to places like the zoo, theme parks or a farm.

Juniors is aboutActivities

  • having fun
  • making friends
  • enjoying lots of activities
  • trying new things

What else do I need to know?

Juniors have a special uniform that they can wear. As everyone wears the same thing they feel as though they belong. However nobody need feel excluded because they do not have the right clothes.

Why the Junior Section?

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.

Through the many different activities, Juniors will ...

  • learn about themselves
  • get to know people and learn to work together
  • explore their community
  • personally develop

How do I join?

If you would like to join please come along on a Monday evening at 6.15pm or for more information contact Mr Cutts via the Church Office on 020 8366 5526.
