There’s something in Rainbows for every girl


As a Rainbow, your child will develop their self-confidence, learn about who they are and try lots of new things.
Rainbows get their hands dirty while taking part in all sorts of activities including crafts, games and building lots of new friendships. They may even get to go on their first sleepover.
There’s something in Rainbows for every girl, whatever her interests, ability and background; she’ll laugh, learn and have adventures all at an affordable cost

The Rainbow promise


Being kind and helpful has always been an important part of guiding. Our Promise for all is an inclusive commitment for every member from all faiths or none. This links us to other Girlguiding members across the world and what makes guiding so special.

Whatever you're into, there'll be a badge


Our programme delivers the varied, fun activities you would expect from guiding all based under six themes. Rainbows can work towards interest badges, where they can learn about everything from recycling to storytelling. One of the great things about being in guiding is all the different badges you can try!

I have enormous fun with the girls and it is so hugely rewarding watching their little characters form and grow in confidence through guiding and the activities we do. As well as being with the girls and doing a wide range of activities, days out and sleepovers, I have gained qualifications for myself and even got the chance to travel with guiding and visited India – the trip of a lifetime!
