Guides

Guides make stuff happen!

Guides is our section for 10 - 14 year olds. By becoming part of a worldwide community of girls who learn together and share skills and experiences, Guides have the chance to get out there and do something really different. Members take part in a wide range of exciting activities at their regular meetings, and at special events or holidays. Girls can get involved in anything from adventure sports to performing arts, travel and taking part in community action projects. Guides work together in small groups called 'Patrols'..

Starting Guides

We have 9 Guide units in Guernsey that meet in different areas of the island and on different nights.

When girls have been to Guides for a few weeks and feel ready, they can make their promise as a guide and start to wear the uniform. click here to register to join



The Promise


I promise that I will do my best,
to be true to myself and develop my beliefs,
to serve the King and my community,
to help other people and to keep the Guide Law

The Guide Law


  1. A Guide is honest reliable and can be trusted
  2. A Guide is helpful and uses her time and abilities wisely
  3. A Guide faces challenge and learns from her experiences
  4. A Guide is a good friend and a sister to all Guides
  5. A Guide is polite and considerate
  6. A Guide respects all living things and takes care of the
    world around her

Uniform

The Guide uniform consists of:

  • Polo Shirt
  • Hoodie
  • Long Sleeved Top
  • Dress
  • Skirt
All girls should have a uniform top or the dress, which can be worn with appropriate bottoms for the occasion. Your unit may have some guidelines on what is and isn’t acceptable in normal meetings. If a girl chooses the dress she will need an item underneath, such as the long-sleeved top, although she may wear a top of her choice in navy or black.

When an event is described as a formal occasion, the dress or a uniform top should be worn with either the optional uniform skirt and navy/black leggings or tights or smart black or navy skirt or trousers (for example, those that girls might wear to school)
