Girls in Brownies have incredible experiences together, make brilliant friends and discover the world around them. Every time they meet up, groups of Brownies learn new skills and take on challenges as they work out what they want to be and do in the future.
A space to try new things
A space to try new things – Brownies is about getting together regularly – often each week – to work on badges, play games and see friends. It’s about trying adventurous activities and going along to special events, day trips, sleepovers, camps and holidays. Brownies go for it! Girls in Brownies are part of a small group called a Six, lead by a girl called a Sixer. They make their own decisions about what badges and activities to do next. They work together to explore their place within their local community and the world around them.
Moving on from Brownies
Towards the end of their Brownie days, when they are around ten, girls are introduced to some of the activities that Guides do. This helps Brownies to find out more about what’s in store for them when they move up a section to Guides.
