Guides is our section for girls aged 10 to
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
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
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 It! 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 towards
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, named in honour of the founder of guiding.
As part of the Award, Guides would need to take part in a
Baden-Powell Adventure. These are usually residential events
organised locally - find a Baden-Powell
Adventure near you and book.
