Its time to join the fun! - Girlguiding in Torry
Girlguiding in Torry is part of Girlguiding Scotland, which has more than 60,000 members and a mission to inspire and empower girls to be the best they can be.
We know all girls are amazing and can do anything they set their mind to. We encourage them to try new challenges and adventures, be it camping abroad, canoeing or partying at Girlguiding Scotland’s pop concert, Tartan Gig.
Each new experience helps girls find out how much they’re capable of, learn skills that will give them a head start in life and make a positive difference to those around them. Most importantly they have loads of fun and build brilliant friendships along the way!
We’ve been helping girls push the limits for more than 100 years – listening to them and changing with the times so we stay one step ahead. Find out more about how Girlguiding Scotland got started.
Our 11,000 amazing volunteers have a brilliant time too – learning new skills, being inspiring role models for girls and making friends for life. But with thousands of girls on our waiting lists, we still need more people to come forward. Why not find out what it’s like to volunteer with us?
Our youngest members are Rainbows, their meetings are full of games and activities, which provide challenging opportunities for Rainbows to think for themselves and take an active part in unit decision-making. (aged 5-7)
Brownies have fun! 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, usually ones that the Brownies have suggested themselves. Everything a Brownie does is an adventure - it's a world of excitement, new interests and friends. (aged 7 -10)
Being a Guide is all about belonging to a group, learning new skills, making new friends and helping others. Each Guide is encouraged to achieve her own personal goals through a progressive programme with the opportunity to work for a wide variety of badges. This allows the girl to mature and develop at her own pace. (aged 10-14)
Units meet once a week during school terms. There are often other opportunities to take part in special activities and events throughout the year including sleepovers, holidays, camping and day trips.
