Brownies is an organisation that is now all over the world for young girls, this is one of the youngest groups in the scouting and guiding fraternity.
Such a popular interest with groups not only in the U.K but all over the world.
Brownie clubs are generally carried out in the local village or memorial hall.
Ages of the Brownies start at 7 and at the age of 10 you leave and can go on to become a Girl Guide.
You do not need any special abilities to become a Brownie, girls with disabilities are especially welcomed to become a full member and join in the fun.
Brownies started in 1914 by Lord Baden-Powell to make the youngest group in the scout and guiding clubs, (though today Rainbows is the youngest). Today Brownies learn new skills working through badges and create lots of craft projects as well as putting on shows and singing and dancing and also do some work for charity. This is a truly fun and social event for young girls just as much today as it has been for 100's of years. With international clubs we also see different styled uniforms.
Brownies usually meet once a week, though through school holidays usually the clubs take a break too, though many do run a summer camp for either a long weekend or a week, once you have visited a few times you can then decide to be become a full member wearing the Brownie uniform.
