Cadette Bridging Ceremony
Girl Scout Promise, Girl Scout Law
Optional: Court of Awards and Candlelighting Ceremony
Cadette Girl Scout Leader recognizes and presents each Cadette Girl Scout advancing into Senior Girl Scouts with a small gift or token.
Cadettes you’ve been for three short years
We say goodbye and hold our tears.
Growing and learning Girl Scout ways
Has filled our memories to last for days
As Senior Scouts you’ll learn and grow
Keeping our Promise as you go.
Senior Girl Scouts:
S - means we are SISTERS
To scouts across the land,
And if we should ever meet,
We’ll give a friendship hand.
E – means we are EQUAL
To any task that comes our way
Girl Scouts are courageous & strong
That is what we say.
N – means we will NEVER forget
Our land and country dear.
Honest, fair, friendly and helpful
We live together, here.
I – means that I will try
On my honor to abide
The Girl Scout Law and Promise
To serve as a lifetime guide.
O – must stand for ONWARD,
And onward we will go,
Through all the ranks of scouting
Watch us learn and grow.
R – is for the RESPECT I show
For myself and others, too.
To make the world a better place
Is what we strive to do.
Senior Leader greets each new Girl Scout Senior with Girl Scout handshake and sign.
(Shake hands with the left hand and give the Girl Scout sign with your right hand.)
End ceremony with singing “Taps” or any song appropriate for closing.
