For more information on the Brownies programme and badges, please visit the Brownies website.

Brownies is our section for girls aged seven to ten.

Through regular meetings, special events, day trips, sleepovers, camps and holidays, Brownies learn new hobbies, play music, explore other cultures and get adventurous outdoors. Girls can also extend their knowledge and abilities by working towards Brownie interest badges covering many different hobbies and activities from Science investigator to Circus skills.

Brownies become a member of a Six, a unit with a name such as Badger, Fox, Mole, Squirrel, Hedgehog or Rabbit, and follow a programme called the Brownie Adventure.

The Brownie Adventure is divided into three areas:

What do girls say about Brownies?

'At Brownies we make loads of friends, and we play games, and we celebrate different cultures. Like during a Jewish festival, we ate apples and honey, which actually tasted really nice!'
Sana, 8

'I'm doing my Out and about and Science investigator badges – I'm learning to use maps and I'm doing lots of cool science investigations. I want to do my Water sports badge next.'
Chloe, 9

'It feels nice to be part of a group of girls who help each other and are friendly. It makes me feel special. I like that there are no boys at Brownies!'
Heather, 10
