If you haven’t been part of a bridging ceremony yet, there’s a good chance you will be. They usually take place at the beginning or end of the Girl Scout year and are a way to celebrate your transition to the next level of Girl Scouting.
Some ceremonies include activities like candle lighting or walking over a symbolic prop bridge. Or girls can walk over an actual bridge in a park or scenic area. The ceremony might also involve completing activities and earning a Bridging award, pin, or patch, like this Bridge to Senior Girl Scout Award.
A bridging ceremony is also meaningful for graduating Girl Scouts as they “bridge” to becoming Adult Girl Scouts. However you celebrate your bridging ceremony, it should be fun and memorable for everyone involved. For more ideas about bridging ceremonies, click here.
