Girl Guides

Guiding is the largest youth organisation for girls in the UK to-day. Adult volunteers give on average 120 hours a year of their time. Guiding in Cullybackey started in 1921 at Hillmount and moved to meet in the Cuningham Memorial Church Hall many years ago. We meet on a Monday night from 7.30-9pm.

Girlguiding believes in the value of learning by doing. This is put into practice through a Method with five interlinking elements, known as the Five Essentials of guiding:
  • working together in small groups
  • encouraging self-government and decision making
  • a balanced and varied programme
  • caring for the individual
  • sharing a commitment to a common standard

The Guiding Method is delivered to young members grouped by age into four sections: Rainbow Guides, Brownie Guides, Guides and members of The Senior Section. Its principles apply to all members, including adults.

You can join guides on or after your tenth birthday. You are welcome to come along and see what we do together before making the commitment to join.
There is an opportunity to complete 'go for its', work for badges on various themes e.g. football, chocolate, faith awareness, hobbies, science, culture.
Every girl is offered a residential experience, the opportunity to go for international selection, complete Baden Powell Challenge, attend camps and activity days.
A piece of uniform is required and annual fees are payable.

We are currently at capacity and operating a waiting to join list. You can register your interest in becoming a member or volunteer
