Lone Guiding
Senior Branches 

Guide Enrollment Pin Guides


Guides is a three-year program for nine to twelve year-olds. The theme of the Guide program is For Fun and Challenge. Guides work on program areas called pathways:
My Community
My Outdoor Environment
My Horizons
My Future


Each pathway has three challenge levels:
Encountering (first year)
Exploring (second year)
Discovering (third year)


Guides also work on group activities and interest badges.

The Guide Promise

I promise to do my best,
To be true to myself, my God/faith* and Canada;
I will help others,
And accept the Guiding Law.

* Guides choose to say either God or faith when repeating their Promise, according to their personal beliefs.

The Guide Law

The Guiding Law challenges me to:
be honest and trustworthy
use my resources wisely
respect myself and others
recognize and use my talents and abilities
protect our common environment
live with courage and strength
share in the sisterhood of Guiding.


The Guide Motto

Be Prepared
