PGMA Girl Scouts Bridging Ceremony, Oct 27

PGMA Girl Scouts will have a bridging program and ceremony Sunday, October 27, 3 – 5PM, at the Fox Hill Community Park bridge. Bridging is an important transition in a Girl Scout’s life. It’s a defining moment when a girl becomes aware of her achievements and is ready for new adventures and responsibilities.

There are two components to earn a Girl Scout Bridging Award. For the first step, girls have to “Pass It On” by telling younger girls what it is like to be a Girl Scout at their current level. For example, Brownies would tell Daisies how much fun it is in Brownies and the type of activities they have done in the past year. The second step is to “Look Forward” where girls find out from older Girl Scouts what it is like to be in that level. For example Brownies would listen to what Juniors had done in the past year and find out how much fun it is to be a Junior.

Bridging Girl Scouts: get prepared to share last year’s amazing, fun and challenging experiences as well as what you are looking forward to by writing two letters: one letter to a younger girl and a second letter to an older girl. In the first letter you should write 2-3 things you enjoyed about being a girl scout in the previous year, and in the second letter write 2-3 things you are looking forward to in the upcoming year. Younger girls can write one sentence and/or draw a picture. All letters should be brought to the bridging program in sealed envelopes. Write your name on the upper left corner of each envelope, then address the first letter to the level you are leaving, and the second letter to the level into which you are bridging.

Girls bridging to Brownies, Juniors and Cadettes should wear their old vest and bring their new vest to change into at the bridging ceremony. Bridging Girl Scouts will receive their bridging award inshaAllah. Girls who are unable to attend the bridging, should inform their troop leader and they will receive their bridging award at the following troop meeting.
