As we come to the end of another Girl Scout year, many Girl Scouts are bridging to the next program level. This is a great time for girls to take a moment to reflect on their achievements and prepare themselves for new adventures and responsibilities. A fun way to do this is through a bridging ceremony and/or by earning a bridging award.
Here are some tips to have a fun, successful bridging ceremony:
- Have girls as part of the planning process. This is a great way to make sure the activities are fun and engaging!
- Don’t worry about finding an actual bridge. A “make believe” bridge can be something as simple as laying down masking tape.
- There is no right or wrong way to do a ceremony. Let your girls have fun planning a ceremony they feel celebrates their accomplishments.
- Rainbow themes are fun and have meaning. You can use the colors of the Membership Star grade-level discs to make a Girl Scouts rainbow.
- Blue for Daisy
- Green for Brownie
- Yellow for Junior
- White for Cadette
- Red for Senior
- Navy Blue for Ambassador
