When a girl starts Brownies, she joins a group called a Six.
This gives her a ready-made circle of friends. She also may receive
Becoming a Brownie, an activity book that contains the
Brownie story and helps her understand what Brownies is all
The Brownie activity programme
The Brownie Adventure has three areas:
You: Brownies develop confidence and
self-esteem through having new experiences and learning new skills.
They build friendships and learn to share and cooperate with others
by working together in small groups called 'Sixes'. They get a say
in what happens at Brownies through discussions or 'Pow-wows',
which help them develop decision-making skills and the ability to
put their views across.
Community: We encourage girls to become active
citizens by helping them understand and participate in their
communities. This could mean raising money for charities or
visiting local places of interest.
World: Our programme encourages girls to learn
about the wider world. Activities could involve celebrating a
festival from a different culture, finding out about endangered
animal species, or learning how they can combat climate change.
Towards the end of her Brownie days, a Brownie may be introduced
to the Brownies Go For It! resource. It is similar to
Guide Go For It! resources, which give groups of girls more freedom
to choose their own activities. The activities will encourage her
to find out about Guides as well as
develop skills such as team work and decision-making.
Before leaving Brownies, a Brownie usually has a party or
celebration to mark her time in the section. Girls often move on at
the end of a term, so it's likely that some of her friends will be
moving with her.
