Guides are never stuck for something new to do and learn. They have excellent opportunities to get out there and do something really different. They 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 our star-studded concert the Big Gig and our music festival, Wellies and Wristbands.
As they progress through Guides they’ll have the chance to lead small groups and support younger members to have fun and make friends. They can even get involved in our leadership opportunities.
Guides decide together in groups what they do in their meetings. Choosing from a wide range of badges, skills and activities covered by our six programme Themes. They may decide they want to try a new sport, have a go at performing, run a debate or brush up on their first aid skills – the choice is theirs! For a full breakdown of all six Themes, visit the Girlguiding website here.
They can earn unique awards like the Commonwealth award, the Guide Gold award and the six Theme awards which are designed to inspire and challenge the girls.
