Hello everyone!

My daughter is joining Brownies the week after half term. She is quite excited about it! I am wondering though please what do Brownies do? She is just 7 and I dont want her going away on any trips away (for the night or whatever) although day trips are ok tho.
Any info gratefully received

Thanks

That sounds good Waterlook and thanks Corrie. I was worried that they would go away on trips but if they dont thats great!! I always wanted to be a Brownie when I was a kid, so glad my daughter can do it!

My daughter is 7 and went on an overnight camping trip with the brownies. It was all voluntary, no pressure - some went, some never. She had a great time.

yep was a brownie years back. Not sayin how many, but I remember that the group I went to encouraged church parade. Might be different now. You would need to check it out. Lots of games and chance to take part in all sorts of activities and we used to get badges to sew onto our uniforms. Bit like cubs but for girls.

OK, I imagine you're not a Misc Regular.... so on topic.

You have no fear of 7 year olds being taken away on camping trips. If she continues, after the age of about 11, the opportunities may occur. In the meantime, she will be involved in games she will enjoy playing and meeting new friends. I know in cubs, parents can stay (help and or) watch. Probably an idea to do so until you are happy with what you see.

Yup, I got thrown out of cubs for refusing to swear allegiance to the queen/not saying the lords prayer.

Scummy organisation.

Children should NOT be indoctrinated with the wishes of others.

Gits.

Abandon hope all ye who enter the misc.

Welcome to the world of unwanted rodents, dead presidents, mcdonalds workers and wannabe mods.


I'd turn back round if I were you, for the sake of your sanity. :roll::thumbsup:

Hi,I help at a local Brownie Pack, we encourage the girls to go to church parade (about once a term, it is not compulsory) this is because the church subsidises the rent.
Weekly we spend time on badges, general interests, have visiting groups/people e.g. we had an African drumming workshop last week-great fun, have had Mendhi workshops and dance mats recently.We get invited on trips, recently went to Dudley Zoo for free- a great day out and earned a badge as well.We also go to the panto at Christmas.Once a year we go on pack holiday, a weekend away with the option of visiting daily rather than overnight.This is a local recognised Guide site and indoors, it will all vary from pack to pack on all activities, best to go along for a few weeks and see how your daughter enjoys it.
Hope that helps.

Ours was boring. We danced around this mushroom thing, played sleeping lions, went on nature trails in the pokey garden and had this lame float at the village fete. It was satisfying getting your badges though and although mine was rubbish, my friends had more interesting groups and did cooking (closest we got was peeling oranges, for the old peoples home I think, and making lemonade which we had to sell and werent allowed to drink) and fun stuff. No camping for me, but I'd have loved it. Just make sure she is enrolled into a decent brownies with nice children and encourage her to get as many badges as possible, you have awards ceremonies and everything!
