Friendship and new adventures are waiting to be found in Girl Guides. In Girl Guides, girls ages 5-17 will explore fun activities designed just for them. They’ll get to learn and grow in a space where they can just be themselves. Our program lets girls choose what they want to learn about and chase that curiosity. She’ll get to step out of her comfort zone and challenge herself in new ways!
Girls will join a unit made of up their peers and take on fun activities from scavenger hunts and science experiments to sharing dance moves and exploring her community. Girls can try whatever it is that sounds fun to her at Girl Guides and earn badges to mark her achievements!
