(Age 10 – 14)

Guides are go-getters.

They go on camps, holidays and trips, meet new friends and try out fun things like trampolining and climbing.

Guides grow in confidence and learn about working with others and taking responsibility by planning and carrying out their own activities.

Guide activities cover five zones:

  • Healthy lifestyles: Boosting your physical, emotional and spiritual health.
  • Global awareness: Learning about world issues and how each Guide can contribute.
  • Skills and relationships: Building the confidence and life skills that give you the edge.
  • Celebrating diversity: Learning about rights and responsibilities for all.
  • Discovery: Challenging yourself with exciting new experiences and adventure.

Guide units work in groups of friends called Patrols. Each Patrol has a Leader who works with the Unit Leaders to make decisions. Guides can also get a taste of leadership by becoming a Rainbow or Brownie helper.

Patrols can choose from a range of activities including themed resources for Patrols called Go For Its!, interest badges and challenge badges. Guides can also set their sights high and aim for the Baden Powell Challenge Award – the highest award a Guide can achieve.



The Guide promise is:
I promise that I’ll do my best,
To be true to myself and develop my beliefs,
To serve the Queen and my community,
To help other people,
And to keep the Guide Law.


The Guide Law is:
1. A Guide is honest, reliable and can be trusted.
2. A Guide is helpful and uses her time and abilities wisely.
3. A Guide faces challenges and learns from her experiences.
4. A Guide is a good friend and a sister to all Guides.
5. A Guide is polite and considerate.
6. A Guide respects all living things and takes care of the world around her.
