Brownies

Brownies are for girls aged 7 to 10 years.

Brownies become a member of a Six such as the Imps, Gnomes, Elves, Sprites, Ghille-Dhus, Kelpies, Pixies or Leprechauns. Each six is made up of girls of all ages, and older girls get the opportunity to become the Sixer or Second of their group. They get a say in what happens at Brownies through discussions or 'Pow-wows', which help them develop decision-making skills and the ability to put their views across.

Brownies develop confidence and self-esteem through having new experiences and learning new skills during our weekly meetings and also at other special events throughout the year. Girls can find themselves trying out new arts and crafts or recipes, playing energetic games, taking part in community action projects or zooming down zip wires or crossing high wires at an activity day.

Girls can also work towards Brownie Interest Badges, either on their own at home or during our Brownie meetings. There are a wide variety of Badges from Book Lover to Circus Skills giving Brownies the opportunity to bring their other interests into Brownies.

Our Brownie Pack is called 1st Hillsborough Brownies, and we meet on Monday evenings in the Main Hall in the Downshire Centre from 6.30pm – 7.45pm.
