The Girl Program
Today’s Girl Guides offers the widest range of activities of any extracurricular activity for girls and young women, with opportunities to explore the arts, sciences, outdoor challenges, global awareness and so much more through enriching experiences that will stay with them for a lifetime. Our core programming allows girls to develop life and career skills in age appropriate groups, where they participate in a number of standard activities to earn badges. There are five branches of girl programming, by age:
- Sparks (ages 5 and 6)
- Brownies (ages 7 and 8)
- Guides (ages 9 to 11)
- Pathfinders (ages 12 to 14)
- Rangers (ages 15 to 17)
- Lones is an option for girls who are unable to attend regular meetings due to distance, health, studies or physical challenge.
In addition to core programming, Girl Guides have the opportunity to participate in special challenges and activities, according to their particular interests. The range of challenges and activities is vast. Themes include science, the environment, arts, international issues, self-esteem and much more. Upon completion of challenges, girls receive crests in recognition of their achievement.
