Slightly different to Rainbows, Brownies and Guides, Rangers is not always a weekly meeting, with many units choosing to meet fortnightly or monthly. The flexibility of joining a Ranger unit means girls in this section of Guiding, who are aged 14-18, will often re-schedule Ranger meetings to suit the needs of their school work, exam dates and other important dates during this age range.
Rangers have the exciting opportunity to gain their Lead away permit, enabling them to lead camping trips for their fellow Ranger friends.
Whilst a Ranger with Girlguiding Norfolk, girls will be encouraged to attend sleepovers, trips and camps as a peer group and will not always have their Ranger leader with them, teaching them independence and giving them the opportunity to socialise and make friends with other Rangers across the County, the UK and internationally.
Support is available to help you complete the Young Leader or Adult Leader Qualification, Commonwealth Award, the Duke of Edinburgh scheme and, of course, the Queen’s Guide award which is a fantastic achievement and looks great on your CV and job applications.
