If you’ve been wondering if Girl Guides is a fit for your child now’s the time to check them out!
Girl Guides of Canada-Guides du Canada (GGC) recognizes and values the richness of human diversity in its many forms, and therefore strives to ensure environments where girls and women from all walks of life, identities, and lived experiences feel a sense of belonging and can participate fully. This commitment to inclusion means GGC’s culture, programming, and practices encourage self-awareness and awareness of others; room for difference; and environments where girls and women feel safe, respected, supported, and inspired to reach their potential.
As part of their Try Now, Join Later campaign Girl Guides is inviting girls 5-17 years who are not currently members to try Guiding at no cost for the remainder of the year (typically May or June depending on the group).
Each age group has their own assigned group (Sparks, Brownies, Guides, Pathfinders, & Rangers) and all current programming and activities have been adapted to follow current health guidelines that are in place. All participants will also receive advance access to registration for the 2021-2022 year.
