Girl Scout Ceremony of International Friendship

A Ceremony of International Friendship

You will need: 10 candles, matches

Each girl will hold a candle, which will be lit by the girls as they speak.

Girl 1:

We carry the candles of friendship. These are the symbols of our pledge as Girl Scouts, of friendship to all the world, and of special friendship for Girl Scouts everywhere. The flames are small and burn steady and bright.

Girl 2:

We watch the glowing flames with grateful thoughts of Girl Scouts here and abroad who have put their friendship to a special test and found it true.

Girl 3:

This candle is for the Founder of Boy Scouts and Girl Guides, Lord Baden-Powell.

Girl 4:

This candle is for the Founder of Girl Scouting in these United States, Juliette Low.

Girl 5:

This candle is for all Girl Scouts and Girl Guides wherever they may be today.

Girl 6:

This candle is for service to our country.

Girl 7:

This candle is for the hope of peace in every land.

Girl 8:

This candles says, good luck to all who are away from home.

Girl 9:

This candle is for our Girl Scout Law.

Girl 10:

This candle is for the Promise we make as Girl Scouts together.

Say Girl Scout Promise.


(Put out candles as you speak.)

I quench the flame of our candles, but the light of friendship still glows in our hearts. May we always be true and helpful friends to each other and to all.
