    Sixers without Seconds

    Has anyone ever had Brownies with sixers but not necessarily a second in each six? Due to numbers we need to go up to 5 sixes, but a lot of our girls are very new and not experienced enough to be seconds imo. We don't do a lot where sixers take full charge of their group and the girls we have...

    Offering a District Pack Holiday (Kinda)

    Hi all, We're starting to plan our Pack Holiday for next year, and the one place I would really like to offer is quite expensive, and for a group of 20 it's far too cost prohibitive (Yes, we do fund raise, but don't get enough to make it a lot cheaper) 30 girls would ideally make it an...

    First Aid 'Training Box'

    How do you deal with new girls 'turning up'

    How do you all deal with new girls just turning up? I had a current Brownie walk in on Monday saying 'We've got a new girl starting tonight' and this girl came in with her parents and started playing with girls from school. Parents told me she would like to join and do we have space? Now, we...

I'd like to run a 'GBBO' evening/few weeks themed activity for my Scouts and i'm looking for suggestions. We're limited on actual cookers etc, but as I only have 8 Scouts, we could fit...

    Brownie Badges Pinterest Site

    Hi all, I've noticed recently that a lot of leaders don't use the official interest badges for Brownies- and only rely on unofficial challenge badges. Many of the reasons for this i've seen are that the badges are 'boring' or that they don't know how to run them. This gave me an idea- I...

    How far can you backdate?

    For your leadership qualification? Is it at your mentor's discretion? I can't *see* anything online regarding this? I've been a Brownie leader since turning 18 (I was also a YL for 4 years before that, but I know that doesn't count!) but never got round to pulling it all together. I'm only...

    Question? What does 'Jamboree' mean to you?

    Hi all, I've started working on a project for an event which will be happening in a few years. I'm just looking into brand awareness at the moment, and how 'well known' it is. (I'm not mentioning the name purposefully as I don't want it to impact upon your answers!) I'd really...
