More than 100 Girl Scouts from across Colorado gathered on the Royal Gorge Bridge, the highest suspension bridge in the United States, on Saturday, May 4, 2019. They celebrated advancing from their current Girl Scout level to the next as part of a special event called a Bridging Ceremony. A reception afterwards featured cupcakes, lemonade, and activities led by GSCO staff.
A bridging ceremony is an important transition in a Girl Scout’s life. It’s a defining moment when a girl celebrates her achievements and prepares for new adventures and responsibilities. Once a girl bridges to a higher level of Girl Scouting, her leadership skills and the experiences she will have continue to grow. Girl Scouts is not simply an after-school activity, it’s the Girl Scout Leadership Experience that builds as girls progress through the program that gives girls the skills they need to empower themselves to take their place as future leaders.
