Troop 2510 bridges to Seniors

Submitted by Rachelle Trujillo

Four beautiful freshman from Troop 62510 bridged to Senior Girl Scouts last week. They bridged at Ralston Creek in Arvada, returning to the site where they bridged as Juniors.

While our troop has tightened up from the 20 girls we started with in kindergarten, my Seniors are dedicated and passionate about making the world a better place and going for their Gold.

My girls have grown to be a diverse group with different interests, yet I see them valuing the role each girl has played in their lives, the lessons learned, and the sisterhood that will always unite them through Girl Scouts.

I’m so proud to be an advisor to these young ladies and excited to see where their passion takes them!

Five Daisies become Brownies

Troop 63388 planned their bridging celebration with the help of GS books and GS website. The Daisies planned the menu, made invitations and practiced the ceremony four times! We learned new songs to welcome our Brownies. We cheered as our Daisies walked over the bridge to their moms, who placed the new Brownies sash over their shoulder. Our Friendship/Closing Circle was our best with all our Moms and Dads joining us!

Hundreds of Girl Scouts cross Royal Gorge in traditional bridging

IMG_1851

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.
