Brownies

Brownies is our section for girls aged seven to ten.

Brownies become a member of a six such as Badger, Fox, Mole, Squirrel, Hedgehog and Rabbit and follow a programme called the Brownie Adventure. The name reflects the world of exciting opportunities, challenges and fun that is Brownies.

Girls can participate in a wide range of activities at their regular meetings, and at special events, day trips, sleepovers, camps and holidays. They can find themselves trying out arts and crafts or recipes, playing energetic games, or trying to get round an assault course blindfold at one of our activity centres.

Girls can also extend their knowledge and abilities by working towards Brownie interest badges covering many different hobbies and activities from Science investigator to Circus skills.

The Brownie Adventure is divided into three areas:

  • you
  • community
  • world

Calder Division have 9 units spread out over Mirfield, Dewsbury and Woodkirk.

2nd, 7th and 14th Mirfield Brownies had a truly Gross time at their Eureka Sleepover. The girls enjoyed learning about ancient Greece during a pretent tv show, got free rein of the museum exploring me and my body exhibts and even took part in a grossologist workshop learning about their bodies function and made their own snot, fake wounds and pretend sick before sleeping over in the museum.
'It was really cool' said one brownie, 'especially when we made our own sick it smelt disgusting.'


Brownies from the 2nd Mirfield Brownies got chance to make their own bread hedgehogs and taste a range of bread during a Warburtons Bread making workshop.
The Brownies said - 'it was really fun kneading our own dough and adding eyes with raisins.'
