More About Girlguiding
As a parent of daughters who took full advantage of Girlguiding activities from a young age, I understand first-hand why it’s an organisation worth celebrating. My daughters really enjoyed and learned a lot from their sessions especially their years with Rainbows and Brownies.
The Girlguiding programme is split into age groups:
- Rainbows for 5 to 7-year-olds.
- Brownies for 7 to 10-year-olds
- Guides for 10 to 14-year-olds.
- Rangers and Young Leaders 14 to 18 years olds
The guides logo shows a 3 leafed plant which represents the guides 3 promises:
- To do your best
- Serve your Queen and country
- To help others
