British Girlguiding Overseas (BGO)

Girlguiding is the leading UK charity for girls and young women, providing its members with a space where they can be themselves, have fun, build brilliant friendships, gain valuable life skills and make a positive difference to their lives and their communities.

BGO units run by dedicated volunteers meet across France for Rainbows (5-7 yrs), Brownies (7-10 yrs), Guides (10-14 yrs), Rangers (14-18 yrs) and Trefoil Guild (adult members). Currently we have units in Ile de France, Toulouse and Mauzac (24).

British Scouting Overseas

Scouting exists to actively engage and support young people in their personal development, empowering them to make a positive contribution to society. There are four Groups in France belonging to the Scout Association UK: in Chantilly, Croissy-sur-Seine, Maisons-Laffitte and Toulouse. They are part of British Scouting Overseas and offer a challenging and exciting programme for children, both boys and girls, from 6 years of age.
