Extraordinary Options or Extra Ops is an innovative way to deliver Girl Guiding to more girls. Girls in Extra Ops participate in programs that relate to a single activity or theme, such as camping, sports, travel or the arts. They do not earn badges and use only basic insignia. Girls can choose to be members of both a branch unit and an Extra Ops unit.
Trex is an Extra Op for girls 12 to 17 that focuses on camping and the outdoors.
Girls in Trex and Extra Ops are also eligible to participate in Nationally-Sponsored Trips and events in their province, across the country or even around the world. Travelling with Girl Guides gives girls the opportunity to make friends from all over the country, partake in unique experiences and create unforgettable memories. Furthermore, girls in these groups can also apply for Girl Guide scholarships to help them pursue their career goals.
