WHO ARE BROWNIES??

Brownies are fun-loving adventurers, stepping out of their family and school surroundings to learn more about themselves in relation to others. The name "Brownie" is used in Girl Guide and Girl Scout organizations worldwide, and it's part of the fabric of growing up in the United States.

Brownies can earn Try-Its which they wear on the front of their brown sash or vest. Try-Its introduce girls to activities and let them try something out -- proficiency is neither required nor expected.



A typical Brownie meeting includes songs, crafts, games and exploration of new places and ideas to encourage exploration and help girls grow into leaders.

As a Brownie, you might...

  • Take a trip to learn how something is made
  • Attend special Girl Scout events in your community
  • March in community parades
  • Teach Girl Scout Daisies songs and games
  • Make holiday cards for a senior center
  • Go to the movies
  • Try new things at summer camp
  • Attend Council and community programs and meet other Girl Scouts
  • Participate in the Girl Scout Cookie Sale
  • Travel in a group, on short trips
    in town
  • Create arts and crafts projects
  • Make decisions through discussion and voting


During the 2 years as a Brownie, every girl should have the opportunity to …
LEARN THE GIRL SCOUT WAY, HELP MANAGE HER TROOP, LEARN AND ACHIEVE, EXPLORE THE OUTDOORS,
EXPRESS HER CREATIVITY, and SHARE IN THE GIRL SCOUT COMMUNITY.

Brownie Journey Program


It's Your World-Change It!


Girl Scout Brownies are invited on a search.
The three keys they will uncover along their
 journey are the keys of the Girl Scout leadership
philosophy. This quest has second and third
grade girls traveling along two colorful trails,
one they can enjoy on their own and one they
explore with their Girl Scout group. 
The two trails: The Trail of the Elf Adventure
and The Trail of the Three Keys. In The Trail
of the 3 keys, Brownie Teams will follow a quest
in unlocking the 3 keys of leadership through
Discover, Connect and Take Action activities.
A new elf (Explore, Link Arms and Fly into action)
story will be introduced. The Trail of the ELF
Adventure girls will meet Campbell, Jamila
and Alejandra.
 
The Discover Key
To earn this award, each
Girl Scout Brownie will discover herself and
her values—as a Girl Scout and a member of her family.
The Connect Key To earn this award, each Girl Scout Brownie
will connect as a member of a Brownie Team, with her family on
a healthy-living activity, and, as a group with their community to
increase
healthy-living opportunities
The Take Action Key To earn this award, Girl Scout Brownies
will team up to identify a community place where the team can
Take Action. Then they join together to make a plan to Take
Action and carry out their Take Action Project to improve their world.
The Brownie Quest Award At the end of the Quest, the girls
also earn the journey's culminating award, the master lock that
needs all three of their keys in order to open. Through this award,
the Brownies will see that, together, their three keys—Discover,
Connect, and Take Action—unlock the meaning of leadership.

 

 

It's Your Planet-Love It!
The Brownie friends explore the Wonders of Water and Ways of Working as a team. Brownie ELF is back for the Very Wet Elf Adventure. In real life, the Brownies might just hold their own “Green Tea for the Blue Planet "as they earn their Love, Save, Share and Wow awards.

The WOW! journey presents Brownies the opportunity to earn four awards. Girls begin with small, personal acts and then move out to purposeful teamwork that engages the larger community and influences its members in significant ways.

  • LOVE Water - This first award encourages girls to become aware of the many ways they use and enjoy water. As they begin to understand the science of water and its importance in the world, they will also make a personal commitment to protect it.
  • SAVE Water - The second award is earned when the Brownies team up and speak up as advocates to protect water or keep it clean in their community. Girls start thinking as a team about what they will do for water. By making an effort that moves beyond themselves, the girls begin to realize the impact that group efforts can produce.
  • SHARE Water - Girls earn the third award as they create an even bigger ripple by sharing their efforts for water with others, educating and inspiring them to join in, and asking them to commit to a water promise.
  • WOW! - Girls culminate their journey by earning the WOW! Award, a grand finale that symbolizes the powerful change they've brought to their community. They earn the award by showing proof of their SHARE Water efforts, and by describing how their efforts relate to the Girl Scout Law and how they have had an impact as leaders.

Fun Songs for Brownies

Brownie Clean Up Song
(to the tune of "Jingle Bells")

Leader: Brownie Scouts, Brownie Scouts.
Let's tidy up the room.
BrownieScouts, Brownie Scouts.
Time to go home soon.

Girls: Brownie Scouts, Brownie Scouts,
We're picking up our things.
Brownie Scouts, Brownie Scouts,
Hear our voices sing.

Brownie Smile Song
I’ve something in my pocket
It belongs across my face.
I keep it very close at hand
In a most convenient place.

I'm sure you couldn’t guess it
If you guessed a long, long while.
So, I'll take it out and put it on
It's a great big Brownie smile.

Round About Round
Round and round and round about
Turn about and in and out
Come into the Brownie Ring
Ready for most anything

Round and round and round about
Take the hand of a Brownie scout
Here we are in the Ring
Ready for most anything
