Girls can choose items from a range of comfortable and practical Brownie uniform. Gone are the days of brown dresses, now we have funky Brownie wear. Girls love wearing Brownie uniform – it gives them a sense of belonging.
All Brownies need to have a uniform top and bottom. We would expect Brownies to wear this each week to our meetings and this would also be considered appropriate for events where formal uniform is required.
Girls may choose from the following:
- Short sleeved t-shirt
- Long sleeved t-shirt
- Hooded jacket
- Cycle Shorts
There is also a uniform sash available that girls may choose to put their badges on.
As a Pack we do not regularly wear neckerchiefs. However, we do wear neckerchiefs if we are attending district events so that we can easily spot our Brownies. These will be provided by our Pack on the day and do not need to be purchased by a parent.
Badges and Badge Placement
Badges are part of the symbolism of Girlguiding and an important way to recognise girls’ participation and achievement. Here are some general guidelines for displaying badges on Brownie uniform:
- Most of our Brownies wear their badges on their sash. Generally with the unit badge at the top where the sash would cross the shoulder, the Promise badge under and the other badges underneath.
- When not worn on a sash, Promise badges should be worn on the left-hand side – closest to the heart.
- Only woven badges received for participation or achievement should be sewn onto uniform. For example, a Brownie who attends a Pack Holiday at Camp House should not sew a generic Camp House woven badge onto her uniform, these are for camp blankets.
