Ever since I was old enough to join, I've been going to guides weekly, and never wanted to quit. Although some may say it's mainly for the younger girls, even at age 15 there is still so much guides has to offer me.


At guides, the main purpose is to have fun, learn important skills and have somewhere outside of school to socialise. We go camping often to learn new outdoor skills, get trained for first aid, and do lots of other fun activities every week.


All of the guide leaders are there voluntarily, and are some of the most generous and time giving people I've ever met. I'm honestly so glad I grew up going to guides, and believe it really has changed my childhood and helped me learn so much more. I wouldn't be the girl I am today without it. So if you have a guides (or scouts) near you and are able to go, I highly recommend it.
