Guides are aged between 10 and 14 and have much more input into their programmes. Usually meeting from 7 or 7.30pm they are grouped into “Patrols” and take part in wide range of activities including Badges, “Go for It” Challenges.

Emma is a Guide Leader from  Balham and Tooting “I really enjoy the variety that you get when working which such an interesting age group. When the girls start Guides at 10 they are still at Primary School and you see a fantastic change in them during their years at Guides – they learn great leadership skills, grow their self confidence and really develop into young adults. With this age group we can do some really interesting activities, both within our weekly meetings along with taking them on week and weekend camps.”
