This bridging ceremony was originally written as part of the Studio 2B program for graduating senior high school Girl Scouts who were bridging to adults, but I like the simplicity of it, and it could easily be adapted for girls bridging to Senior or Ambassador Girl Scouts.
The 12 Candles of Girl Scouting
The passages may be divided equally between the bridging girls. Each candle is lit as the girl recites the passage. (If similar candles cannot be found in the appropriate colors, ribbons may be tied to the base of white candles. Caution should be used to avoid contact between the ribbon and the flame.)
Girl Scout: Silver—Morning, the beginning of a new day, which presents a new challenge
Girl Scout: Yellow—Juliette “Daisy” Gordon Low, the founder of the Girl Scout movement
Girl Scout: Pink—Other girls in Girl Scouting, sisters to each other
Girl Scout: White—Purity of every Girl Scout’s heart
Girl Scout: Gold—The Girl Scout Pin, which reminds us of our Promise and Law
Girl Scout: Purple—Courage to stand up for what we believe
Girl Scout: Turquoise—Water, which sustains life
Girl Scout: Brown—The earth on which we live
Girl Scout: Green—All plant life that beautifies the earth, which we must respect and protect
Girl Scout: Red—Fire, which glows for warmth and friendship
Girl Scout: Blue—The sky, under which we are united by our Girl Scout ideals
Girl Scout: Orange—Sunset at dusk, the closing of another Girl Scout day
When all of the candles have been lit, the girls may be presented with the Bridge to Adult Girl Scouts Award.
