About the Club or class

What do girls do in Guides? 

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

You could get skills builder badges in themes such as camping, communication and first aid. And if you want to take guiding home, there’s lots of interest badges to do in between unit meetings, like the craftivism badge, fixing badge and whittling badge. 

Discover all the badges Guides can earn

Many units split girls into small groups called patrols for some activities and, as you get older, you’ll have a chance to become a patrol leader. You could also try out the Guide camp permit, become a Rainbow or Brownie helper with a local unit and inspire our youngest sections, or become a member of Amplify, who help staff and senior volunteers make decisions about the future of Girlguiding. 

As well as going to events planned locally with your unit, you could also go to our jam-packed adventure weekend, Fearless Fun, our extreme winter camp, Sparkle and Ice, and our very own festival, Wellies and Wristbands, and make friends from around the UK. 

What Guides wear 

We encourage members to wear a uniform to show they’re part of the Girlguiding family - and you can wear a Guide top or dress. 

Badges can be attached to your uniform – the promise badge, which you’ll get after making your Guide promise, should be on the left-hand side and every other badge can be attached where you choose.
