We're for GIRLS

Girl Guides Ballarat provide a fun, weekly, after-school activity for girls.

And for many girls it is much more than just an after school activitiy.  Guiding becomes a central point for developing social skills and life skills.

  • develop new skills
  • try cool activities
  • gain confidence to think and act for themselves
  • make new friends
  • acquire a greater respect for the environment and
  • experience a sense of community while having fun.

That's what Guiding is all about.
