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.

The Brownie Adventure

Girls follow the Brownie Adventure programme in their regular meetings. They work towards interest badges related to activities and skills such as stargazing or science investigation.

Brownies take part in exciting trips and events locally and with girls across the UK. Girls might enjoy 24 hours of circus-themed fun at our Magic and Mayhem event, spend their first weekend away on pack holiday or try out an adventurous sport with their unit.

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.
