Brownies is our section for 7-10 year olds. Brownies is about getting together regularly each week to work on badges, learn new skills, play games and see friends. It’s about trying adventurous activities and going along to special events, day trips, sleepovers, camps and holidays.
All Brownies are sure to try new things and take on a broad range of challenges as they explore the topics that sit within our six programme themes- Know Myself, Express Myself, Be Well, Have Adventures, Take Action and Skills For My Future.
Girls in Brownies are part of a small group called a Six, led by a girl called a Sixer. They make their own decisions about what badges and activities to do next. They work together to explore the world around them and make a positive difference in their community.
In their regular meetings girls will try new things, they can work in groups on skills builder activities such as, Live smart or Network and have fun all together with unit meeting activities.
Brownies work towards interest badges in their own time, choosing topics and skills they are interested in and exploring everything from languages to space.
Brownies can feel proud of their achievements with awards for each theme and work towards the Brownie Gold award – the highest award a Brownie can get!
When a Brownie nears the end of her time in Brownies, she can go onto Guides which is our section for girls aged 10-14. Near the end of their Brownie journey they will learn more about Guides and the exciting things to come when they move up.
