Het Arubaanse Padvindsters Gilde (APG, The Aruban Guild of Girl Guides) is the national Guiding organization of Aruba. It serves 185 members (as of 2003). Founded in 1941, the girls-only organization became an associate member of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts in 1993.

Program sections[edit]

The association is divided in three sections according to age:

  • Brownie - ages 7 to 11 - yellow shirt
  • Guide - ages 11 to 17 - light blue shirt
  • Pioneers - ages 17 to 21

The Girl Scout Motto is Wees Bereid, Be Prepared in Papiamento and Dutch.


The badge of Het Arubaanse Padvindsters Gilde is based on the badge of the former Dutch Girl Scouts organisation, Het Nederlands Padvindsters Gilde. The badge consists of a ten point star for the ten points of the Girl Scout law on a Trefoil for Girl Scouting/Guiding.
