Guides are 10-14 years of age. These girls run their unit to a larger degree. They choose activities they would like to do. They make suggestions for trips they would like to take part in. Guide select their own badges and GO for its and work towards completing these both in Patrols and individually. When doing Go for its the girls have to plan how they will complete the Challenge and ensure all the items they require are organised for the event to go ahead. When planning city trips leaders book for the girls, but girls take the lead in places to visit and things to do. Pervious camps/ residentials have included skiing in aviemore, camping at Badaguish, Camping at Netherurd (scottish headquarters camp site and sleeping over in halls. we have set our sights on an international trip in the near future – our Chalet in switzerland
We also join in Guiding events at local and national level. Recent events include the tartan Gig; a guiding only concert of up and coming young bands, Badaguish is a popular place for county events in the past. we wil be joining with the whole of the highlands for a massive camp in the near future.
Our unit encourage the girls to take part in the Baden Powell Challenge, the highest award available to a guide. There are ten clauses the girls have to complete, often as part of this the girls choose to take their Patrol camp permit. this involves organsising a group of guides to go away for a weekend. they learn how to buget and choose the right food for the facilities. They also learn how to mediate in disputes between group members. They run the camp for the weekend with no direct adult supervision, though they are monitored to ensure they are safe. Usually by Guiders who are away with Borwnies at the time – so the girls have a point of contact nearby in an emergency.
