"I love being a Brownie as we do so many fun activities, meet new friends, and learn a lot. Brown Owl works hard and always has exciting things for us to do, like the sleep over for the World Traveller Badge.
Daniella , age 7 Brownie Seconder

 

“Both my daughters started in the Bda Girl Guides as Rainbows, the younger one is now a Guide and the the oldest one finishing as a Young Leader."

"The friendships that develop, the sense of responsibility and community spirit and the camping trips that sometimes push them beyond their comfort zones, are all great lessons in life to help create a well rounded individual, ready to take on the world!”
Jane, Parent

About Us

The Bermuda Girl Guide Association was formed in 1919 with the 1st Hamilton Guide Company. We have grown to be the largest of the 9 Branch Associations of Girlguiding UK. We sponsor 17 active units across the island, hosting over 400 girls ages 5-20 and now operate under the name of Girlguiding Bermuda.

The girls follow a similar programme to girls in the UK, use the same publications and wear guiding clothing. Although Branch Associations use programme materials and training, we develop our own activities also.

Our goal is to enable girls and young women to reach their fullest potential by teaching leadership and instilling values in a fun environment.

As a Rainbow, Brownie, Guide or Senior Section, girls will be exposed to lots of opportunities that will last a lifetime. Girl guiding provides a safe, girl-only space to explore the activities, issues and possibilities that are relevant to girls today.

The range of activities is enormous from outdoor challenges, learning new skills, international travel to getting involved in community action projects. And whether camping or volunteering girls will make a lot of friends and have a lot of fun.

But there’s more to guiding than having a good time. It provides opportunities for girls and young women to:

  • Be challenged by new experiences and achieve a sense of pride in accomplishment
  • Think for themselves and make decisions
  • Undertake teamwork and acquire leadership skills
  • Acquire self-awareness, self-respect and self-confidence
  • Develop personal values which give their lives meaning and direction
  • Do their best according to their abilities
  • Seek spiritual development - whatever faith they belong to
  • Contribute to society
  • Live by a simple code - the Guide Law

 

dsc07076Girlguiding Bermuda is also a part of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts which has member organizations in 144 countries around the world.
