Girl Guiding in the Wychwoods

Rainbows – Ages 4 to 7 Rainbows is all about developing self-confidence, building friendships, learning new things and having fun. Girls get their hands dirty with arts and crafts, get in touch with nature and play games – it’s all about learning by doing.

Wychwood Rainbows meet each Wednesday 5.10pm to 6.10pm during term time at Wychwood Primary School.

Brownies – Ages 7 to 10 Brownies is about trying new things that teach girls aged 7 to 10 about themselves, their community and their world. Brownies introduces girls to a world of new opportunities, challenges and fun. Girls go along to camps, holidays, day trips and sleepovers. They get together with their friends at regular meetings where they learn new hobbies, get creative, develop skills and have outdoor adventures.

Wychwood Brownies meet each Monday 6pm to 7pm during term time at Wychwood Primary School.

Guides –  Ages 10 to 14 Guides have an exciting and varied programme designed to inspire and challenge girls. What you do in Guides is up to you, from taking part in lots of exciting activities at regular meetings to special events and trips away. You will choose from different badges and awards which will help you learn new skills and try new challenges. You can do some of this on your own and others you’ll do in groups in your regular unit meetings.

Wychwood Guides meet each Wednesday 7.15pm to 8.30pm during term time at the Wychwood Primary School.

Girlguiding celebrates Thinking Day on 22nd February each year. This year instead of having a big get together with the other units in the District. Our Guide unit sent a message and a small token (friendship bracelets) to another Guide unit.
