What do Brownies do?
Brownies are aged from seven to ten.
Brownies have fun and do it all! Brownies play lots of indoor or outdoor games and activities at their regular meetings, at special events, camps and holidays. You will have a great adventure being a Brownie - it's a world of excitement, new interests and friends. Brownies can find themselves trying out arts and crafts or recipes, playing energetic games, taking part in community action projects, or climbing a climbing wall. Brownies also have the opportunity to get interest badges, such as hostess, swimming, science investigator and many more... Brownies follow the Brownie Adventure programme and become a member of a group called 'Sixes'.
The Brownie Adventure programme
You Community World
You: Brownies develop confidence and self-esteem through having new experiences and learning new skills. They build friendships and learn to share and cooperate with others by working together in small groups called 'Sixes'. They get a say in what happens at Brownies through discussions or 'Pow-wows', which help them develop decision-making skills and the ability to put their views across.
Community: We encourage girls to become active citizens by helping them understand and participate in their communities. This could mean raising money for charities or visiting local places of interest.
World: Our programme encourages girls to learn about the wider world. Activities could involve celebrating a festival from a different culture, finding out about endangered animal species, or learning how they can combat climate change.
