Girl Guides

Castle Carrock and Talkin

Girl Guiding

We are an organisation for girls between 10 and 14 years of age and do a large variety of activities both indoors and outdoors including camping and indoor weekends away. The girls are encouraged to help organise our programme with activities they enjoy.

We operate using the Girl Guiding philosophy of encouraging the girls to be the best that they can be and encourage them to work together in small groups to achieve this.

Girl Guiding in the United Kingdom has just celebrated its 100th birthday and Girl Guides in Castle Carrock have been operating in the Watson Institute for over 50 years. They were among the first Guiding Groups to start up in Cumbria.

Our programme and activities keep evolving to keep up to date with what interests young girls today.

If girls are interested in attending or Adults are interested in helping please either come to our monday night meetings (we start at 7pm) to see what we do or contact Jan Howe on 07546 229993 or
