Start your next adventure in Girl Scouts with a Bridging Ceremony

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.
