Guides

Guides is our section for girls aged 10 to 14.
By becoming part of a worldwide community of girls who learn together and share skills and experiences, Guides have the chance to get out there and do something really different.

Members take part in a wide range of exciting activities at their regular meetings, and at special events or holidays. Girls can get involved in anything from adventure sports to performing arts, travel and taking part in community action projects.

Guides work together in small groups or ‘Patrols’ and, with the support of an adult Leader, choose and run some of the activities themselves using Go For Its! resource packs.

The Guide programme is divided into five areas:

-discovery of new experiences and challenges
-healthy lifestyles
-global awareness
-skills and relationships
-celebrating diversity

Girls can extend their knowledge and skills by working Guide interest badges  covering many different hobbies and activities from Film lover to Independent living. They can also gain Challenge badges that recognise their participation in guiding over a period of time. The badges build towards the Baden-Powell Challenge Award.

If your daughter is already a member of a Rainbow or Brownie unit you do not need to register her interest again.
Ask one of her Leaders to pass her membership number onto the unit you wish for her to transfer to. A member of the new unit will contact you with more information about the section, meeting time and cost.
