Girlguiding Kent Weald County

Welcome!

Welcome to Girlguiding Kent Weald County.  You will find information about all of our Divisions which cover the towns of Maidstone, Tonbridge, Tunbridge Wells and the surrounding villages. You can also find out more about the different age groups within Girlguiding in our Sections pages. As a National Organisation, we empower nearly half a million girls and women to be their best and face the challenges of growing up today. We’ve been doing that through adventure, friendship and fun for over 100 years.

Here is everything you need to know about us –  from the Promise that we make, to how we’re run and what it’s like to volunteer for us.

With Girlguiding girls have the best experiences

We’re for all girls and for girls only. That means girls feel free to be themselves. We won’t tell them an activity is ‘for boys’. Our girls get to score tries at rugby, go bouldering or simply play the games that they enjoy most.

We give girls somewhere they can talk openly about what affects their daily lives and get support from other girls like them. When girls told us they wanted to talk about their mental well-being, we created Think Resilient to help our young members lead those discussions.

They go to their first ever sleepover, canoe on rivers, learn about body confidence, lead their own camp, or simply have fun and try new things with girls their age.

Girls take what they do in guiding with them as they grow up. They develop the skills and confidence that they need to reach their potential – as students, colleagues, parents, friends and citizens – and become the young women that they want to be. Rainbows have their first sleepovers, Brownies have outdoor adventures and holidays to build independence, Guides abseil down walls they climbed up by themselves, and The Senior Section lead and inspire younger girls to do exciting activities.

Throughout all sections, our carefully researched national programmes are designed to build on girls’ body confidence, self esteem and personal pride in her own beliefs by individually valuing each girl’s unique contribution.

Girls in guiding do unforgettable things. Register your daughter now to find a local unit.
