Guides (10-14)

For girls aged 10 to 14 - Guides challenge themselves and make a difference in their community

Guides is the most adventurous thing... it gives you the opportunity to meet people and see things you wouldn't normally see, and it's just an amazing experience. - Bryony, Guide

Guides is for all girls aged 10 to 14

In Guides you'll get out there and do something really different.

You'll create your own campaigns, learn and share new skills and fly down the occasional zip wire. You'll explore new places - Guides go on camps, holidays and trips, enjoy exciting events like our star-studded concert the BIG GIG and our music festival, Wellies and Wristbands.

Guides build brilliant friendships

Girls at Guides won't be your average friends. They'll be the girls who want to go on adventures with you, who encourage you to try new things and who celebrate when you've pushed yourself to achieve something special.

As you progress through Guides you'll have a chance to lead small groups and support younger girls to have fun and make friends. You could even get involved in our Youth Leadership programme.

Guides get to have their say

You and the girls in your group will decide together what to do in your meetings. So whether you want to try a new sport, have a go at performing or run a debate - you can.

If there's an issue you really care about, Guides is a chance to make a difference. You'll be encouraged to speak out about what matters to you and to do something about it.

Your Guide programme, awards and badges

You'll follow the Guide programme which includes interest badges - about science, cooking outdoors, films, all sorts - special activity packs and unique awards like the Baden-Powell Challenge Award, which will really help you at school and later in life.
