Brownie Law

Development of the movement

In 1915, Jamaica’s first Guide company was formed in Spanish Town, Saint Catherine. In 1916, the first camp was held and three years later a Ranger

unit was started. In 1967, the Girl Guides Association of Jamaica was registered as a non-profit company limited by guarantee.

In 2000, the Association celebrated 85 years of continuous Guiding. Throughout its history the Association has held a series of local, regional and international activities. A consistent supporter of the World Association, Jamaica has regularly encouraged its members to contribute to the Thinking Day Fund and triennial projects.
