CARINGBAH GIRL GUIDES
Caringbah District Girl Guides have two units – Brownie Guides and Guides. Both meet each week during the school term at the local Guide Hall located Jacaranda Road, Caringbah (beside the YMCA).
** Brownie Guides (7-11 years) Thursday 5.30 – 7pm
** Guides (11-14 years) Friday 6.45 – 8.30pm
Caringbah Guides are involved in a wide range of exciting activities, just a few of which are:
- Outdoor challenges – camping (indoors and outdoors), archery, abseiling, bushwalking, campfire songs!
- Learning new skills like leadership, knotting, teamwork, cooking over an outdoor fire, canoeing and self confidence
- Community action projects such as Daffodil Day, sleeping under the stars for Youth Off The Streets, Clean Up Australia Day, collecting clothes for the Smith Family from the City2Surf, raising money and buying presents for the Kmart Wishing Tree Appeal
But there’s more to being a Guide than just having a good time!
Guiding provides opportunities for girls to be challenged by new experiences, make their own decisions, develop self-awareness, self-respect, self-confidence and to DO THEIR BEST!
