The Girl Guides theme for April is Get Active. This month girls will be encouraged to move in many different ways. Girls will learn about why it is important to be active and complete fun challenges to get moving.
Girl Guides empowers every girl in Guiding to discover herself and be everything she wants to be. In Guiding, girls from 5-17 meet with girls their own age in a safe, inclusive space to explore what matters to them. With programming options ranging from innovative STEM activities to outdoor adventures and discussions on mental health and healthy relationships, girls in Guiding can customize their experience to dive into the topics relevant to them. GGC is where girls take the lead, put their ideas into action and jump into awesome activities – all with the support of engaged Guiders who are committed to positively impacting their lives. Guiding is all about supporting girls as they take on challenges and grab hold of every opportunity that comes their way.
Over the course of the month, girls, units and adult members will be challenged to track their kilometres, complete fun challenges, and learn why it’s important to be physically active and have fun! We will be working towards a goal of 28,500 kilometres collected by girl and adult members of the Girl Guides. We chose this number because there are 28,500 members of the Girl Guides in Ontario and Nunavut. Throughout the month participants will receive weekly challenges to help the Get Active, and be healthy.
