Nitanisak Girl Guiding – October

Categories Girl Guides

In September, all of our units started their first meetings of the year. Many units are doing ‘getting to know you’ activities so that the girls and leaders become familiar with each other, and start learning how to work well together.

Brownies get to choose their circles (‘Fairies’, ‘Elves’, ‘Leprechauns’) – small groups they can break off into to do their attendance and dues. Dues are also known as ‘Fairy Gold’ – girls can earn $1 per week at home by doing a good deed, by lending a hand either at home or at school or out in their community. It is a great way for young girls to learn how to care for others.

Guides also choose smaller groups called ‘Patrols’ (‘Bluebirds’, ‘Violets’, etc.). Some of our Guide and Pathfinder units will also be taking advantage of the warm autumn weather to go camping. Many camps have been booked for months already – September and October are busy times at area Girl Guide camps.

One last major event for all of our units in September and October would be selling our famous Girl Guide cookies. You may have already seen girls selling cookies at Edgemont Superstore, or Sage Hill Walmart, or pretty much anywhere in Calgary starting mid-September. Thank you for all of your support.

If you’d like to register your daughter, please visit and use the unit finder to find an open unit in your area. If you cannot find a unit in your neighbourhood, it might be because the unit is full (you can modify the search – try searching “all” units; the default is to show only units with space available). You might want to consider becoming a leader – with more leaders, we can take in more girls. For more info, please email [email protected] for more information.
