During the coronavirus pandemic Guides have not been able to meet physically but they can continue to do activities towards badges and awards at home and join in with online events.
About the 2nd Egham Guides (ages 10-14) at St John’s
With guiding girls have fun, adventure and the space to discover their potential.
Guides have an exciting and varied programme designed to inspire and challenge girls from 10-14. Being a Guide is all about 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 and awards. This allows the girl to mature and develop at her own pace.
How it works
Guides work together in Patrols, groups of four to eight girls, providing a ready-made group of friends and helping the girls to feel that they belong to something special. A Patrol plans its own activities with the support of the Guide Leader so that each Guide learns to share in decisions that affect herself and others in the Patrol.
Guides also get out there and do something really different. They learn and share new skills and fly down the occasional zip wire. They explore new places – Guides go on camps, holidays and trips as well as enjoy exciting events.
Volunteering with Guides
Girlguiding isn’t just for girls. Many volunteers give their time as Leaders or Assistant Leaders for guiding units and get to see girls enjoying events and activities that they have organised.
