Brownies and Guides

St John’s Brownies and Guides meet weekly in term time in Lower Caversham. Both units are part of Girlguiding which is the leading charity for girls and young women in the UK and are open to all girls – of all faiths and none. Girlguiding groups are fully integrated to include girls with disabilities.

Unit meetings are full of challenges, games and activities, usually ones that the girls have suggested themselves. Brownies are girls aged seven to ten who become a member of a Six and follow a programme called the Brownie Adventure. Brownies opens up a world of exciting challenges and the opportunity to try new things and to make brilliant friends. Guides are girls aged 10 to 14 who are given the chance to explore their individual skills and abilities and try out new challenges as part of a team. Girls can get involved in anything from adventure sports to performing arts, travel and taking part in community action projects.
