What do Brownies do?
Brownies have fun and adventures! They take part in indoor and outdoor activities that challenge them to do their best. Their meetings are action-packed and full of challenges, games and activities that the Brownies have suggested themselves. Everything a Brownie does is an adventure – it is a world of excitement, new interests and friends. Each Brownie is a member of a Six, a small group made up of four to six Brownies of different ages. A Six will play and learn new things together through games and activities. It is led by a Brownie Sixer and a Brownie Second (who are usually older Brownies).
A worldwide Movement
As a Brownie your daughter is a member of Girlguiding UK, the largest voluntary organisation for girls and young women in the UK with around half a million members. There are similar organisations throughout the world and Girlguiding UK is a founding member of the world association that unites them.
Who can be a Brownie?
Any girl aged seven or over can be a Brownie. The oldest Brownies are usually around ten years old. Membership of Girlguiding UK is voluntary and is open to any girl or woman, regardless of faith, race, culture, nationality or circumstance. Brownies make, or work towards making, the Promise.
