A world of new opportunities

Being a Brownie is an adventurous journey girls go on with friends to discover the world around them.

What is Brownies?

Brownie units bring girls together to help them discover new hobbies, get creative, explore other cultures and have outdoor adventures. Girls meet regularly to work on badges, learn new skills, play games and see their friends – and there are also opportunities to go along to special events, like sleepovers and camps.

Have adventures

During meetings girls will try new things – they can work in groups on skills builder activities and unit meeting activities (UMAs).

They can work towards interest badges in their own time, choosing topics and skills they’re interested in, exploring everything from languages to space.

Earn awards

Brownies can feel proud of their achievements by earning awards for each theme, and even work towards the Brownie Gold award – the highest award a Brownie can get!
