At their regular meetings, plus camps, holidays and other events, Guides can try a wide range of exciting activities - everything from arts, crafts and music to adventurous outdoor activities - giving them the opportunity to develop personally as individuals or as members or leaders of a team of 4-8 other girls (called a Patrol).
With the support of an adult Leader, Guides choose and run some of the activities themselves using themed activity 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. They can also gain Challenge badges that recognise their participation in guiding over a period of time. The badges build towards the highest award a guide can gain - the Baden-Powell Challenge Award.
Suitable for ages 10 - 14 years.
