The international aspect of Guiding is very important and, from a young age, girls are aware of being part of a large international organisation. When she becomes involved in Guiding, a girl quite literally gains 10 million friends. Each summer hundreds of Guides and their Leaders head off to camp all over the UK, Europe and further afield. These are organised by other Guiding associations and are a great opportunity for Guides and their Leaders to make life-long friends. For many members Guiding is a passport to see the world as there are lots of opportunities to visit and work at Guiding centres abroad.

Every year we get lots of requests from Girl Guides and Girl Scouts world-wide who are looking for ideas on activities, games, crafts, songs, recipes etc. to use with their groups around World Thinking Day. 

Click on the images below to open up fun activity sheets full of songs, games, crafts, recipes and Irish language. We hope you learn a lot about Ireland and IGG by visiting these pages. If you would like to buy badges, programme books, uniforms or novelty items then you can visit our Guide Shop online or email our and they would be happy to help you.

Each year on 22nd February, Girl Guides and Girl Scouts all over the world celebrate World Thinking Day. It is a day to think about the meaning of Guiding and Scouting and about all your fellow Guides and Scouts around the world. Donations are collected for the World Thinking Day Fund which supports projects to help Guides and Scouts around the world. February 22nd was chosen as it is the joint birthday of Scouting Founder Lord Baden-Powell and his wife and World Chief Guide Olave Baden-Powell.

A-wear-ness Day

Every year to raise awareness of the excellent work our Leaders and girls do, we would like to outwardly express our membership of this wonderful organisation.  We ask all our members to wear all or part of their uniform to school or work on the 22nd of February. Many of their sister-Guides will be doing the same around the world.

We also have a number of colouring templates that you can use if you’re looking for an easy activity to do with your girls.
