About Guides

Guides are busy exploring their world, from the backyard to the planets. Learn leadership skills and take on new challenges in the outdoors and your local community. You’ll find your passions and start learning how to take action in your world.

Fun and adventure is at the heart of Guides! It’s a special place to be a girl and connect with friends.

Guiding teaches me how
much the environment
means to us and teaches
me how to enjoy
doing things with friends.
