Development of the movement

The first Guide company in Grenada was set up at the Church of England High School in 1925. Other Guide companies were soon formed, and the first Brownie packs were introduced in 1927 and the first Ranger company in 1928. In 1936 the government gave the Association a piece of land as the site for its headquarters.

Guiding had started well in Grenada but political problems in the following years slowed down the development of the Movement. Until 1983 Grenada was a Branch Association of the Guide Association (UK), but that year the United Kingdom granted Grenada self-government in all areas of work.

In 1985 the Association held its first international camp, attended by neighbouring Caribbean Associations. During the next few years trainers and advisers from WAGGGS and the United Kingdom visited Grenada to help the Association to develop its programme and a firm structure. Guiding is now active in most parishes, with the majority of units attached to schools and a few to churches and communities.

In 1989 the first Rainbow unit was started in a small village called Binchgrove in the largest parish, St. Andrew.
