Through regular meetings, special events, day trips, sleepovers, camps and holidays, Brownies learn new hobbies, play music, explore other cultures and get adventurous outdoors. Girls can also extend their knowledge and abilities by working towards Brownie interest badges covering many different hobbies and activities from Science investigator to Circus skills.
Part of the challenge for the ‘More Adventures’ badge and Brownie ‘Go For It’ involved the girls planning and running a whole evening which they really enjoyed. Other badges include the Agnes Baden Powell Challenge, Beatrix Potter Challenge, Senior Section Challenge and other outdoor challenges. The girls really love their badges and so want to work towards as many as possible.
A staple of the calendar is the summer pack holiday at the Jarman Centre, near Newmarket. This is great fun and a chance to get to know the girls more! This is such a popular venue that it is becoming increasingly difficult to book so future pack holidays may be more overnight ventures.
