Guides build brilliant friendships

Guides have an exciting and varied programme designed to inspire, challenge and encourage girls to make a difference in their community.

Guides is an excellent opportunity to get out there and do something really different. Girls 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 Tartan Gig.

Guides make new friends for life

Girls at Guides won’t be your average friends. They’ll be the girls who want to go on adventures with you, who encourage you to try new things and who celebrate when you’ve pushed yourself to achieve something special.

As girls progress through Guides they’ll have a chance to lead small groups and support younger girls to have fun and make friends. They can even get involved in our leadership opportunities.

Guides get to have their say

Girls decide together in their groups what they do in their meetings. Choosing from the wide range of badges, skills and activities covered by our six programme themes. So whether they want to try a new sport, have a go at performing, run a debate or brush up on their first aid skills – they can!

Guides go, go, go!

Guides are never stuck for something to do. Whether girls want to dedicate their time to exploring the outdoors, focus on their hobbies, or challenge themselves with something new, there’s something to suit everyone.

Guides can work towards interest badges – about photographygeocachinghuman rights and more – develop life skills with skills builders and earn unique awards like the Commonwealth award, the Guide Gold award and the six Theme awards, to help girls in school and later in life.
