Sparks (Ages 5-6) Meeting Date/Time: Mondays 6:00pm – 7:00pm
In Sparks, girls are encouraged to try a bit of everything and begin discovering their individual skills and talents. Girls will make lots of new friends, start collecting badges and begin to learn all kinds of new skills in a safe and fun atmosphere.
Brownies (Ages 7-8) Meeting Date/Time: Mondays 6:00-7:00pm
The hands-on Brownies program is all about encouraging girls to develop their own identity and positive relationships with others. Brownies gain confidence by learning skills that they can use in their daily lives and developing a commitment to their communities through service projects and special events. Programming covers everything from safety and healthy choices, science, technology and the arts, and eco-awareness and camping.
Guides (Ages 9-11) Meeting Date/Time: Tuesdays 6:30-8:00pm
In Guides, girls start developing leadership abilities by making decisions about Unit activities, learning to organize events and teaching each other new skills. The Guide program includes activities that deal with cyber-safety, anti-bullying, self-esteem, health and fitness and environmental sustainability. Guides also have opportunities to take a stand on issues important to them and to make the world a better place through community service projects such tree planting and volunteering at local food banks – while still having tons of fun.
Pathfinders (Ages 12-14) Meeting Date/Time: Tuesdays 6:30-8:00pm
The Pathfinder program allows girls to take the lead and become active in causes they believe in. Girls can apply for international trips, particularly to the Guiding World Centres in Mexico, England, Switzerland and India and lead activities for younger girls. Pathfinders also organize events and outings and are encouraged to explore new interests in diverse areas such as photography and web design, fashion and interior design, engineering, community safety, technology and more.
Rangers (Ages 15-17) Meeting Date/Time: Currently no Rangers in the program
The Ranger program addresses the challenges of today’s young women and promotes leadership and community involvement through a flexible program that allows teens to create their own unique Guiding experience. Young women begin to explore career options and learn business skills in budgeting and finance. Rangers are also involved in active leadership opportunities like global development projects, can apply for Girl Guides of Canada scholarships and can volunteer as Junior Leaders.
