In the early 1900s Robert Baden-Powell, a famous British Army general, developed a scheme for training boys. At the Scouts’ first rally in 1909, a group of girls demanded to be Scouts too. In 1910, Baden-Powell formed the Girl Guides. His sister Agnes was assigned to look after the new organisation.
Guiding originally began in the Cayman Islands in the 1930s, led by a Commissioner's wife. The Cayman Islands Branch Association status known officially as “Girlguiding Cayman Islands” was granted in 1987. As of April 2020 Branch Associations form part of British Girlguiding Overseas.
Today Girlguiding Cayman Islands continues to be very active with Units on Grand Cayman and Cayman Brac.
