A girl can become a Guide when she reaches her 10th birthday.
Guides are able to experience exciting challenges with friends in a safe environment, whilst having lots of fun!
The Guide programme provides interesting and inspiring opportunities for girls aged between 10 and 14. They work in small groups called patrols. The patrols decide, plan and do activities chosen from the programme, and are supported by a trained adult leader.
Guides are encouraged to challenge themselves to develop new skills and knowledge, to learn to think and act for themselves, to respect their environment and serve their community.
Guides can earn a variety of badges and can work towards attaining the Baden Powell Challenge Award; the highest award a Guide can get. They have opportunities to take part in events, such as, camping, canoeing, archery, hiking and campfire cooking and singing.
