Costs, uniforms and practical matters

Practical things to know about your daughters’ guiding experience

Girlguiding is a great value-for-money way for your daughter to have fun, try new things and understand more about the world and the difference she can make to it.

We are for all girls and we don’t want anyone to miss out due to financial hardship so speak to your local unit leader if you are concerned that anything may prevent your daughter from taking part.

How much guiding costs

Girlguiding charges membership fees to cover the costs of regular meetings and running our charity. There are sometimes extra charges for special activities, camps and events. Understand more about the costs involved in guiding.


Girls can choose items from a range of practical, stylish and reasonably priced guiding uniform to wear at their meetings. Find out more about what girls wear for guiding.
