RAINBOWS (5-7 years old)

Rainbows is all about developing self-confidence, building friendships, learning new things and having fun. Girls get their hands dirty with arts and crafts, trying out cooking and playing games. Rainbows is all about learning by doing.

The 119th Kirkheaton Rainbows meet on Mondays at 5:30pm at our Scouts & Guides HQ for an hour of fun.


Through regular meetings, special events, day trips, sleepovers, camps and holidays, Brownies learn new hobbies, play music, explore other cultures and get adventurous outdoors. Girls can also extend their knowledge and abilities by working towards Brownie interest badges covering many different hobbies and activities from Science investigator to Circus skills.

The 119th Kirkheaton Brownies meet on Mondays at 6:15pm at the Methodist Hall on New Road in Kirkheaton until 7:30pm.

GUIDES (10-14 years old)

By becoming part of a worldwide community of girls who learn together and share skills and experiences, Guides have the chance to get out there and do something really different.

Members take part in a wide range of exciting activities at their regular meetings, and at special events or holidays. Girls can get involved in anything from adventure sports to performing arts, travel and taking part in community action projects.

The Guide programme is divided into five areas:

  • discovery of new experiences and challenges
  • healthy lifestyles
  • global awareness
  • skills and relationships
  • celebrating diversity.

The Guides meet on Mondays at 7:15pm at the Methodist Hall on New Road in Kirkheaton until 8:45pm.
