Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia’s “Bridging Savannah’s Bridge” took the traditional bridging ceremony that ends a Girl Scout year and SUPERsized it! Girl Scouts, past and present, from across Georgia and around the nation came to Savannah, the historic home of Juliette Gordon Low and the Girl Scouts, to participate in this special and unique opportunity: to celebrate themselves; reflect on their contributions to their community; connect with their Girl Scout sisters and our history; and experience a Girl Scout Ceremony as they never have before!
Bridging is an important transition in a Girl Scout’s life. It’s a defining moment when a Girl Scout becomes aware of her achievements and is ready for new adventures and responsibilities. Bridging ceremonies often utilize a bridge as girls take literal steps toward the future.
For Girl Scouts, the act of crossing the bridge is both a physical and symbolic step, as they have the opportunity to bridge six times - Daisy to Brownie, Brownie to Junior, Junior to Cadette, Cadette to Senior, Senior to Ambassador, and Ambassador to Adult.
