Guides have an exciting and varied programme designed to inspire, challenge and encourage girls to make a difference in their community.
Guides is an excellent opportunity to get out there and do something really different. Girls create their own campaigns, learn and share new skills and fly down the occasional zip wire. They explore new places like camps, trips and enjoy exciting events like Tartan Gig.
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 girls progress through Guides they’ll have a chance to lead small groups and support younger girls to have fun and make friends. They can even get involved in our leadership opportunities.
Guides get to have their say
They decide together in their groups what they do in their meetings. Choosing from the wide range of badges, skills and activities covered by our six programme themes. So whether girls want to try a new sport, have a go at performing, run a debate or brush up on your first aid skills – they can.
If there’s an issue girls really care about, Guides is a chance to make a difference. Girls are encouraged to speak out about what matters to them and to do something about it.
You Guide programme, awards and badges
You’ll never be stuck for something to do in Guides. Whether girls want to dedicate their time to exploring the outdoors, really focus on their hobbies, or challenge themselves with something new, there’s something to suit everyone.
