Brownies are usually aged between seven and ten, although some Brownies stay in the unit until they are a little bit older.
Brownies belong to a Pack and work in small groups called Sixes. This gives each girl a group of ready-made friends to take care of her. It also makes her feel that she belongs to something special. Brownies go on an Adventure that is divided into three areas: you, community and world. Adventures involve a wide range of exciting opportunities and challenges that are fun. Activities can include arts and crafts, games, community action activities, rock climbing, archery and team challenges.
Brownies meet regularly, usually once a week during school terms. There are often opportunities for Brownies to take part in special activities and events throughout the year. Many Brownie Packs go away on holiday, to camp or on an overnight sleepover.
