Brownie Bridging Ceremony
[Scouts form two horseshoes facing each other,
juniors in one, brownies in the other with the bridge separating them.]
"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.]
"Hello there. Who are you all dressed in brown with such cheerful smiles and not
"We are the Brownies and we like to have fun.
Junior Scouts we'd like to become."
"By what right do you ask?"
"By the right of our wings." [Point to wings]
"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:]
"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.
[All sing, "Make New Friends"]
