Save the date: Royal Gorge Bridging

 

 

 

 

 

Save the date for GSCO’s statewide Girl Scout Bridging at the Royal Gorge Bridge on May 19, 2018! The bridge, located outside of Canyon City, is one of the most majestic backdrops for a Girl Scout Bridging with it’s breathtaking scenery. Last year, we had more than 300 Girl Scouts, friends, and family cross the bridge during the ceremony and enjoy a cupcake reception afterwards.

Admission to the park for the bridging ceremony is good for the day, so many Girl Scouts and troops plan extra time to enjoy the bridge and the different attractions onsite. The bridge has a lot of picnic tables and different hiking trails available for use as well as food onsite. There’s also several campsites close by.

Information about this year’s ceremony and reception is coming soon. To be notified when bridging registration opens, please contact GSCO Community Partnerships Manager Lori Thompson at lori.thompson@gscolorado.org.
