WHAT WE DO

GirlGuiding NZ supports girls to take action and change their world. We’re a girl-led organisation.
That means you’ll be the guide. What kind of adventure are you looking for?

Fun and friendship await!

Are you ready to bring more awesome to the world?

Pippins
5-6 years

The adventure starts here. Make friends, tackle challenges, find adventure and earn cool badges that show off what you’ve learned along the way.

  • Find the Southern Cross
  • Make a kite
  • Have an indoor sleepover
  • Make music
Brownies
7-9½ years

Brownies are becoming more aware and independent. Lead the adventure and have a say in what you do. Earn badges in teams and on your own.

  • Go camping
  • Write and perform skits
  • Get outdoors with new friends
  • Learn cooking and crafts
Guides
9-12½ years

At Guides you are growing into a leader, making decisions about what challenge you’ll take on next - whether it’s community action or learning to surf.

  • Walk a mile in someone else’s shoes
  • Get creative with science
  • Become weather wise
  • Cook a feast outdoors
Rangers
12-17 years

At Rangers, you’re setting your own goals and achieving them. You might travel to international camps or events and help lead the younger groups to share what you’ve learned.

  • Make friends from around the world
  • Follow your own interests
  • Take action in your community
  • Develop leadership skills

Help create our future leaders

Becoming a volunteer for GirlGuiding NZ is an amazing way to give back to your community.

“WE ARE GIVING GIRLS OPPORTUNITIES TO GET OUTDOORS AND CHALLENGING THEM WITH ACTIVITIES THEY DON’T USUALLY GET TO DO. SHOWING GIRLS THAT THEY REALLY CAN DO ANYTHING!”
