Brownies (age 7-10)

*We’ve launched our official new programme for Brownies – you can find out everything you need to know here. The current programme can still be used until September 2019 but you can buy all the new programme resources here.*

The Brownie Adventure is packed full of fun and exciting challenges based around these three themes:

  • You: Learning about yourself, making new friends and trying new things.
  • Community: Exploring your local area and finding out about the people who live there.
  • World: Discovering the wider world and learning how to keep it safe.

Brownies do this by working towards interest badges covering everything from art and dancing to watersports, wildlife and world cultures. They also create their own events like sleepovers, picnics or pet shows and go on camps as well as other adventures away from their usual meeting place. They’re encouraged to make decisions for themselves and to play a role in planning their activities.

A Brownie unit is split up into smaller groups called Sixes, led by Brownies called a sixer and a second. A pow-wow, involving everyone from the newest Brownie to the Brown Owl, takes place any time during a Brownie meeting when there’s something important to discuss, decide or share.

They’re encouraged to look after each other and all new Brownies have a Brownie buddy to help them settle in. As they come to the end of their time in Brownies, girls are encouraged to complete their first specially designed Guide ‘Go for it!’ badge to help them find out more about Guides and what comes next.

Brownies wear a comfortable uniform where they can choose what items they prefer – find out more by visiting our online shop.
