All ages of Girl Scouts recite the Girl Scout Promise
and Law. One by one Brownie Girl Scout leave the ring.
Each is met by her leader who pins her wings on her and
gives the Girl Scout handshake. A Junior Girl Scout
steps forward and takes the Brownie Girl Scout by the
hand and leads her to the Junior Girl Scout leader who
pins the Girl Scout membership pin on her, and gives the
Girl Scout handshake.

Junior to Girl Scouts 11 - 17 Bridging Ceremony
This can also be adapted for girls bridging into Adult
Girl Scouting by adding the last section to the
Equipment: I. large sheet of poster board.
2. roots, stem, leaves, and daisy flower cut from
colored paper and backed with tape.
#1 G.S.: Just as a root anchors a plant, so does Daisy
provide the base for the Girl Scout program. Let these
roots represent Daisy Girl Scouting . . . the beginning
of the journey. (affix roots)
#2 G.S.: In Brownie Girl Scouts, girls continue their
Girl Scouts. This stem reminds us of that process. Just
as a stem rises up to seek new heights, so do Brownie
Girl Scouts continue their adventure in Girl Scouting
along with adults who help guide them in the right
#3 G.S.: Just as leaves unfold and seek energy, so does
Scouting encourage girls to emerge in a program where
they can seek out new life-enriching adventures. (affix
LEADER: You are now ready to bridge to Girl Scouts 11 -
17 brought to you by STUDIO 2B. You will have the
opportunity to create your own program.
You will be challenged to follow the 4 B's: Become,
Belong, Believe, and Build. As Girl Scouts, you will
have the opportunity to earn charms, Interest Project
Awards, explore career options, hone your leadership
skills, and participate in destinations. Some of you may
choose to earn the Girl Scout Silver Award; others will
go on to earn the highest award in Girl Scouting, the
Girl Scout Gold Award.
Our plant is not complete. It needs the flower. Girl
Scouts 11 - 17 is the bloom of the plant. Through
continued growth and development in the STUDIO 2B
process, you can become the blossom of Girl Scouting.
Let this flower represent the full potential of Girl
Scouting in your life. (affix flower)
(Girls repeat the Promise, receive a daisy flower and
are welcomed in Girl Scouting 11 -17.)
Note: If the girls have completed the Bridging Award,
present it to them at this time.
(Add this section for a Bridge to Adult Girl Scouting
LEADER: Even though the flower eventually fades, it
leaves behind a precious commodity. The seeds that
develop from the bloom ensure the continuance of the
species. They may be spread over the land to generate
new growths of life. Take these daisy seeds as a symbol
of your love for Girl Scouting. Use that love to foster
interest in Girl Scouting in others and to ensure the
preservation of the program. As a new adult in Girl
Scouting, you hold the seeds of future growth in your
hands. Continue along life's path and use your
experiences to support others in the Girl Scouting
(Present each bridging Girl Scout a packet of daisy
You are now adults in the Girl Scout Movement. Some of
you will immediately assume an active leadership role.
Others may wish to accomplish other personal goals
first. You need never stop being a Girl Scout. Maintain
your membership, keep your seeds of future growth in a
safe place and, when the time is right, plant them in
the Girl Scout program and keep it growing.
Note: If the girls have earned the Bridge to Adult Girl
Scouting, present it to them at this time.
