Programme Fun – Guides

Guides like to cook and camp. We run a 1940s camp every year and take part in living history events. They compare uniforms and badges, unit meetings and activities.

They explore how guiding reflects social history through the last century and what Guides did during the wars. They love learning about how Guides march in horseshoe formation and we can try this out with them.

We have lots of books and log books where they can do their own research and find out information for themselves.

We can help girls learn some of the guiding traditional outdoor skills such as backwoods cooking. 

In addition to face to face meetings we can offer online sessions, including leading a one hour Zoom session on how to build your own virtual museum of living in lockdown for your unit. This supports the Creative curating UMA.

See below for some ways that we can support the delivery of the guiding programme and save time for busy leaders!
