All about our Brownies
Brownies is our section for girls aged seven to ten.
Brownies follow a programme called the Brownie Adventure. The name reflects the world of exciting opportunities, challenges and fun that is Brownies.
Girls can participate in a wide range of activities at their regular meetings, and at special events, day trips, sleepovers, camps and holidays. They can find themselves trying out arts and crafts or recipes, playing energetic games, taking part in community action projects, or zooming down zip wires at activity centres.
Girls can also extend their knowledge and abilities by working towards Brownie interest badges covering many different hobbies and activities from Science investigator to Circus skills.
The Brownie Adventure is divided into three areas:
What do girls say about Brownies?
'At Brownies we make loads of friends, and we play games, and we celebrate different cultures. Like in Hanukkah, a Jewish festival, we ate apples and honey, which actually tasted really nice!'
'I'm doing my Out and about and Science investigator badges – I'm learning to use maps and I'm doing lots of cool science investigations. I want to do my Water sports badge next.'
'It feels nice to be part of a group of girls who help each other and are friendly. It makes me feel special. I'd hate there to be boys at Brownies!'
