Brownies welcomes all girls from 7 to 10 years old for nonstop fun, learning and adventure.

What do girls do in Brownies?

Brownies follow our programme. In unit meetings, they do fun activities, play games and earn skills builder badges, all while being supported by our trained volunteers.

Your child could get skills builder badges in themes such as camping, communication and first aid. And if she wants to take guiding home, there’s lots of interest badges to do in between unit meetings, like the aviation badge, performing badge and inventing badge.

Many units split girls into small groups called sixes for some activities and, as your child gets older, she’ll have a chance to become the sixer or seconder, the leaders, of a six.

And as well as going to events planned locally and by her unit, she could also go to our fun-filled, circus-themed extravaganza, Magic and Mayhem, and our jam-packed adventure weekend, Fearless Fun, and make friends from around the UK.

What Brownies wear

We encourage members to wear a uniform to show they’re part of the Girlguiding family. Brownies wear a top and a pair of bottoms.

Badges can be attached to her uniform – the promise badge, which she’ll get after making her Brownie promise, should be on the left-hand side and all other badges can be attached where she chooses.

What’s after Brownies?

After Brownies, she can move onto Guides, our section for girls aged 10-14, a welcoming, fun-filled space where she’ll laugh, learn and expand her horizons.

Girls take what they do in guiding with them as they grow up. Everything from working in a team, to taking the lead, to speaking out on issues they care about. It helps them develop the skills and confidence to become the young women they want to be. ’
