Guides (11-15 years)
What you do in Guides is up to you, from taking part in lots of exciting activities at regular meetings to special events and trips away. You will choose from different badges and awards which will help you learn new skills and try new challenges. You can do some of this on your own and others you’ll do in groups in your regular unit meetings.
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 leadership opportunities
You and the girls in your group will decide together what to do in your meetings, choosing from the wide range of badges, skills and activities covered by our six programme themes. Whether you want to try a new sport, have a go at performing, run a debate or brush up on your first aid skills - 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.
