Brownies

For girls ages 7 and 8
Brownie Units meet once a week, usually for an hour and a half

The hands-on Brownies program is all about encouraging girls to develop their own identity and positive relationships with others. Brownies gain confidence by learning skills that they can use in their daily lives and develop a commitment to their communities through service projects and special events. Programming covers safety and healthy choices, science and technology, the arts and eco-awareness and camping.

Sample activities may include:

  • Learning about healthy friendships
  • Community service projects
  • Celebrating different cultures
  • Finding out how to use basic tools, like screwdrivers and hammers
  • Planning menus for healthy eating
  • Visiting an artist's studio
  • Planting an edible garden
