Focusing On The Conservation of Ecosystems, Habitats & Wildlife

Jungle Juniors

Jungle Jenny is a Brownie and Junior Girl Scout Alumnae

Inspired by the girl and boy scouts of America, Jungle Jenny is currently assembling a group of local girls and boys from Sonoma County, California for a local Jungle Juniors meeting.  JJ believes that all girls and boys should be given the opportunity to develop their connection with nature and understand the value of preserving and conserving our natural habitat.

The Jungle  Law

I will do my best to be
honest and fair,
friendly and helpful,
considerate and caring,
courageous and strong, and
responsible for what I say and do,
and to
respect myself and others,
respect authority,
use resources wisely,
make the world a better place, and
be a sister and brother to every Jungle Junior.

Jungle Junior Development for Girls & Boys

At the 2nd & 3rd grade levels:

  • Think in concrete terms, but are beginning to process more abstract concepts/complex ideas.

  • Spend more time with their peer group and turn to peers for information.

  • Develop an increased attention span; are able to focus on the past, future, and present.

  • Improve in self-control, can conform to adult ideas of what is “proper” behavior, and recognize appropriateness in behavior.

  • Become more modest and want more privacy; want more emotional freedom/space from parents/guardians.

  • Prefer to be with other girls (rather than boys); have a stronger self-concept in terms of sex and body image.

  • Understand more complex emotions such as confusion and excitement; become better at controlling and concealing feelings.

At the 4th and 5th grade levels:

  • Think in concrete ways but are beginning to think logically and symbolically.

  • Move toward understanding abstract ideas; things are often “right or wrong” or “all or nothing,” with little middle ground.

  • Have a strong need to feel accepted and worthwhile.

  • Begin to take responsibility for own actions.

  • Develop decision-making skills.

  • Prefer to be with other girls (rather than boys).

Council Patch Programs

In Jungle Juniors, boys & girls develop courage, character and self-esteem.

Through council patch programs, Jungle Juniors follow requirements that link them with local organizations and resources, helping them develop a lasting sense of responsibility and accountability to their communities.
