Lones (All Ages)

Lones (all ages)


Why become a Lone?

For when challenges make belonging to a group hard

  • distance
  • health
  • physical challenge
  • school workload
  • lack of time
  • transportation

How does it work?

Lones participate in the Guiding program via mail. Each Lone is assigned to a group (Unit). It is her responsibility to correspond as regularly as she can with her Unit Leader (Guider).

The Guider keeps the Lone advised of program and activity:

  • games
  • crafts
  • pictures
  • songs
  • services

The Guider will prepare interesting Unit letters and ask the girls of the Unit to share their ideas and news. This helps to keep the Lones involved and building their new friendships.


The Guider will keep the Lone aware of upcoming events and special activities. If the Lone is interested in participating, she and her Guider will work together to eliminate any obstacles.

The Lone Unit

Lone units are small and members live throughout British Columbia. If a girl moves temporarily to another country, she may continue her Canadian Guiding program by becoming a Lone.


Lones have all the privileges of any girl member.  If the Lone has the credentials, she can apply for Provincial, National and International camps and events. She too can apply for the Guiding Bursaries and Scholarships when she is of age.
