4th Cottingley Rainbows
For girls of 5 and 6 years old.

Girls enjoy taking part in everything from crafting, playing games, baking, singing,
completing badges and the occasional sleepover. More importantly, they make new
friends with whom to share the fun.

4th Cottingley Brownies
For girls of 7, 8 and 9 years old.
Meetings take place on Thursday at 5.30 – 7.00pm
Brownies is great fun and girls take part in all the same sort of activities that they
have experienced in Rainbows e.g. playing games, doing badges, crafting etc. However,
the programme is slightly more challenging and reflects their growing curiosity and independence.
Throughout the year, there may be the occasional trip, walk or even a pack holiday. Pack holidays
are great fun and usually last a couple of nights. They are held at WYNCHES in Burley in
Wharfedale – a fabulous house and grounds belonging to our local Girl Guiding Association.

4th Cottingley Guides
At 10 years old, girls are invited to move on to guides.
Meetings are from 7.15- 8.45pm on a Thursday evening.
By this age, the girls are much more involved in planning their own weekly activities and
they are encouraged to develop their planning and leadership skills.
There are still plenty of games and fun filled activities but the programme includes
opportunities for guides to explore the world around them and develop skills that will
last them a life-time.
A highlight of guides of course, is camping and the girls just love spending a couple of nights
under canvas - making the outdoors their home.
