LeadersHandbookA new set of Girl Guide handbooks were released in 2013.  This project was led by Ballarat's own Karen Chatto with the Australian Program Team.  It is exciting that Ballarat Girl Guides feature on the cover of each book.

The handbooks contain fun ideas, activities, resources and badge challenges. They are designed into each developmental age group:

  • 5-7 year olds
  • 7-9 year olds
  • 9–12 year olds
  • 12–14 year olds
  • 14–17 year olds


Girl Guides Australia have a set of printed books with the syllabus for each badge. These can be purchased from the Guide Shop in your state.
