What are Rainbows?Rainbows

Rainbows are the youngest members of Girlguiding. They are aged between 5 and 7 and meet together in groups called units.

Each unit usually has between 12 and 18 girls and they generally meet once a week during term time lasting about an hour although some units may meet fortnightly or at weekends for longer but less frequently.

Can anyone join? 

Any girl over the age of 5 can join Girlguiding as a Rainbow as long as she is able to understand and wants to make the Rainbow Promise.

So what do Rainbows do?

Rainbows learn and grow through a programme of activities, trips and adventures – both in their unit meetings and at special events.  The programme is called the Rainbow jigsaw and enables girls to develop in 4 areas, whatever their ability or background: Look, Learn, Laugh and Love.

Rainbows are encouraged to try new things, challenge themselves and more importantly, to have fun!

 The Rainbow Promise:

I promise that I will do my best, to think about my beliefs and to be kind and helpful
