Development of the Movement

Guiding in Denmark began in 1910 when some girls joined a Boy Scout group. Within a few years the girls had their own organization, Det Danske Pigespejderkorps (The Danish Guide Association), and in 1919 the KFUK-Spejderne i Danmark (The YWCA Girl Guides) was formed. These two associations joined in 1928 to form the National Organization, Pigespejdernes Fællesråd Danmark (The Joint Committee of Girl Guides in Denmark) when Denmark became a Founder Member of WAGGGS. 

In 1976 the structure of the Joint Committee was changed to include Danske Baptisters Spejderkorps (The Danish Baptist Guide and Scout Association) as a separate association (they had previously been members through KFUK-Spejderne i Danmark). HRH Princess Benedikte is the President of the Joint Committee. 

Pigespejdernes Fællesråd Danmark presents a united image to the public by issuing press releases for special events. The Joint Committee meets periodically with the Danish Scout Council and holds occasional weekend meetings for members of international committees in Denmark.

In 1993 the Organization hosted the World Conference in Nyborg.
