Hundreds of Girl Scouts of all ages from across the state walked across the Royal Gorge Bridge in Cañon City on Saturday in a special Girl Scout bridging ceremony as they move up from one program level to the next.

Bridging ceremonies are anticipated by Girl Scouts nationwide and are steeped in rich, long-standing tradition. In fact, just last Saturday, May 7th, thousands of Girl Scouts from across the country crossed the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco in a similar type bridging ceremony: http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/blogs/incontracosta/detail?entry_id=88603.

Girls learn to appreciate their unique beauty at spa day

032911125025

Girls learning how to take care of their bodies and how to appreciate the unique beauty of each other — that’s what Troop #1993 had in mind when they planned a day at the spa.  The troop visited Empire Beauty School where they learned how to take care of their hair, had their hair cut and/or styled, learned how to do pedicures and manicures.  What fun!  Pizza rounded out the whole experience. What a great bonding event for the troop!
