Rainbows are girls aged between 5 and 7 years old and learn by doing – they get their hands dirty, do sports, arts and crafts and play games. Being a Rainbow is all about having the space to try new things. Through taking part in a range of different activities with girls their own age, Rainbows develop self-confidence and make lots of new friends.
They can work towards interest badges, where they can learn about everything from recycling to storytelling, and start their skills builder journey, developing core skills and trying new things like camping, leadership and first aid.
The Rainbow Promise is: I promise that I will do my best to think about my beliefs and to be kind and helpful.

Once girls reach the age of 7, they can continue their adventure at Brownies.
