World Thinking Day

At ‘The Bridge’ Easterhouse – Rainbows, Brownies and Guides participated in art, drama and dance workshops. The highlight was, without doubt, the swimming session with inflatables – before we all renewed our Promise.


Rah Rah Rio

Fun day for Rainbows and Brownies who were met by a vibrant event site filled with colour, music and lots of activities to visit across the day. Our youngest members showed that #ThisGirlCan when learning new skills in our artistic gymnastics sessions and mini Olympics, before a visit to meet some very special guests from the petting zoo!


Giving Girls a Voice
Sail along the River Clyde – Giving girls a voice was at the heart of our Senior Section celebrations this year as our section for girls aged 14 to 26 celebrated reaching 100 year milestone. This has been a cause for celebration for members across the United Kingdom. Girlguiding Glasgow enjoyed a lovely summer’s evening sailing down the River Clyde with a party band, a photo booth and thanks to a function nearby, fabulous fireworks closed the event in style!

Giving Girls a Voice

County Camp for Guides & Senior Section - Rockin’ Rio was based on a festival theme and allowed members to visit four zones over the weekend. Guides were challenged in the Olympic zone with bubble football, archery and netball before gearing up for the Carnival zone by making carnival floats, festival headdresses and festival face paint. Teamwork was high on the agenda when completing several challenges to gain air miles to visit Rio in the adventure zone. After all the exertion, a visit to the Refresh zone was really needed to chill out in the hot tubs and unwind with yoga and fruit smoothies. Without a dedicated volunteer team to deliver the event and support the guides over the weekend, a camp such as this simply would not be possible so our Sugarloaf Lounge was a place of serenity throughout for Leaders only, with good chat, cake and coffee.
