Brownie Bridging Ceremony

[Scouts form two horseshoes facing each other, juniors in one, brownies in the other with the bridge separating them.]

BROWNIE LEADER:

"Brownies, you are just about
To become a Junior Scout.
Next year you will find
that Junior Scouts are true and kind.
So now I give you Brownie Wings
so you may fly to bigger things."
[She pins the wings on each brownie.]

[Brownies all take a few steps forward.]

JUNIOR LEADER:

"Hello there. Who are you all dressed in brown with such cheerful smiles and not one frown?"

BROWNIES:

"We are the Brownies and we like to have fun.
Junior Scouts we'd like to become."
JUNIOR LEADER:

"By what right do you ask?"

BROWNIES:

"By the right of our wings." [Point to wings]

JUNIOR LEADER:

"We welcome you to Juniors. Please cross the bridge one at a time."

[As each girl crosses, she is met by the Junior Leader and a Junior Scout. She is given her Junior Pin and lead to the Junior horseshoe by the Junior Scout.]

[After all the brownies are in the Junior horseshoe:]

JUNIOR SCOUTS:

"Welcome to Junior Girl Scouts
your a Brownie nevermore.
We'll have lots of fun and lots of games
as we teach you Girl Scout lore.
WELCOME BROWNIES!"
[All sing, "Make New Friends"]
