There are five Guide units in Sittingbourne Division, each following Guiding programme but each, also, having
it’s own character and differences. You can become a Guide when you reach the age of 10 years, with the
majority of the girls being between the ages of 10 and 15 years You do not have to have been a Brownie, you
just need to be interested in working a little, playing quite a lot and having an enormous amount of fun! The
Guide programme is full of amazing experiences and adventures, and it will make it easier for you to stay
with us from Rainbows right up to The Senior Section. There are six special themes that you will do activities and badges for.
