About Gaye Wilson and Guidingworks

I have been a Guide Leader for over 30 years, and have written and collected many Guiding ideas and resources. I started putting some resources on a Geocities website, which became quite popular. However, I encountered some major problems with the site (I was unable to update it for several months - probably something I did wrong rather than any deficiencies on the part of Geocities, which was perfect for my first web presence - all sites on Geocities are now closed down anyway), and decided that, when I chose a web host for my business websites, I would also transfer my Guiding resources. This website is the result.

The purpose of this website is to offer resources, both free and for fee, specifically to members of Girl Guides Australia, but also to the youth and leaders of the Guiding and Scouting Movements worldwide.

Check out the resources that are currently available, and let me know what other resources would be useful for you. In the future I plan to offer material on CD, if there is sufficient interest.

Check the menu at the top of the page to see what is available right now.
