Brownies try new things that teach them about themselves, their community and their world!
Brownies are girls aged 7-10 years old. Brownies opens up a world of exciting challenges and the opportunity to try new things and to have lots of fun! Girls can get the opportunity to go along to camps, holidays, day trips and sleepovers. They get together with their friends at regular meetings where they learn new hobbies, get creative, explore other cultures and have outdoor adventures.
The Brownie Programme
Brownies will have the opportunity to try new activities in the meeting. They can work towards interest badges related to things they want to know more about from aviation to baking! They can start their skills builder journey, developing core skills and trying new things like camping, leadership and first aid.
There're even awards they can earn, like the Brownie Bronze, Silver and Gold award and the six Theme awards, that show their commitment and encourage pride in their achievements.
The Brownie Programme is based around six themes.
Brownies can complete Skill Builders, Interest Badges and four hours of Unit Meeting Activities to gain Theme awards.
Any two Theme awards will earn you a Brownie Bronze award. Any four will earn you a Brownie Silver award. When you've completed all six Theme awards you can work towards your Brownie Gold award.
Sixers and Seconders Day
Each year there are different activities, ranging from pedal cars, climbing wall, low ropes and zip wire, to cooking and craft. The older Brownies are given the opportunity to find out about moving onto the next section, Guides, and have a taster of some of the activities they might experience as a Guide.
This Brownie day is organised by the County for all Sixers and Seconders and Brownies aged 9+. Each year around 200 Brownies meet up at Nine Ashes Scout Activity Centre over a two-day period in October, to have lots of fun and try new activities.
