What location? There are two guide organisations - CGI and IGG. Scouts also take both boys and girls. Starts at 6 not 5 in scouts but you would need to get on the waiting list in a lot of areas.
Skillswise I can only talk for scouts - first aid, bushcraft, building structures, fire safety, backwoods cooking, water skills, hillwalking skills - compass and mapwork, hiking, etc, camping, tent pitching, among others.
