Girl Guides – run in conjunction with Holy Trinity Church of Ireland the Girl Guides is for girls aged 4 and over.
Girlguiding is a world wide organisation empowering and providing a voice for girls and young women across the world. It provides a girl only space to have fun, learn, take action, travel and be our best. In Waringstown Girlguiding is provided through and with the support of the Presbyterian Church and the Church of Ireland but it is a non-denominational and non-political organisation and all are welcome.
Rainbows (age 4-7) get to express themselves through craft, games, adventures, food, trips, music & parties in a safe space where everyone is welcome. Our leaders all take great joy in working with this age group while indulging ourselves in some ‘girlie’ activities now and then.
Brownies (age 7-10) take part in lots of exciting activities, and make new friends from other schools and classes. Girls grow in confidence through adventure, group activities, sports and crafts. The girls love to gain badges, and feel a great sense of belonging to Girlguiding and to the wider community in Waringstown.
Guides (age 10-14) have the opportunity to get out into the world, have new exciting experiences, and have fun with friends. We take part in camps, adventures and exciting challenges, as well as craft, games and chat! Plus, a lot of time eating – hot chocolate and marshmallows being our favourite! Girls take what they do in guiding with them as they grow up; developing skills and confidence.
