WHAT ARE BROWNIES?
Brownies are for 7-10.5 year olds. They learn lots of new things to earn Specialised, Unit or Theme badges. They learn about the outdoor and look forward to "Overnight Adventures" (Camps). Fun is important to Brownies. It's doesn't mean you have to be good at something to achieve it, as long as you try your very best. The highest badge for Brownies is Challenge 9 and a number of our girls have achieved this.


 

Since I became a Brownie leader in 2004, we have done lots of the badges on offer in our current programme plus some of our “own choice”.
