After school activity – Ballarat Copy
Girl Guides is a fun, weekly, after-school activity.
And for many girls it is much more than that. Guiding becomes a central point for developing social skills and life skills.
Guiding is an all-female organisation for girls aged from 5. In fact, it is the world’s largest organisation for females with over 10 million members.
Girls are members of a Guide Unit of similar aged girls in their community. They help to decide, plan and participate in their own unit programs. All girls are encouraged to stand up and be heard on all issues.
The Guiding program has an integrated approach through
- commitment to the Promise and Law
- exploring the outdoors
- service in the community
- learning by doing and
- progressive self-development.
Our Guides enjoy activities such as:
- camps and sleepovers
- outdoor activities
- outdoor cooking
- new skills
- challenge badges
- learning leadership skills
- making new friends
At Guides, girls and women are provided with opportunities to
- 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.
Each week, a team of female, volunteer, adult Guide Leaders present an age-specific program tailored to the needs and interests of the girls. It all happens at Girl Guides.
