Brownie Bridging to Juniors
Every Brownie recieves her wings at the end of her Brownie years.
Song girls also choose to earn their bridge to Juniors rainbow.
Girls need to complete one activity from each section to earn this
A bridging ceremony is held when Brownie Girl Scouts "cross the bridge"
to the next level - Junior Girl Scouts. It is one of the
important milestones in Girl Scouting, and Brownies should
help as much as possible in its planning. They can create
invitations, decide which refreshments to serve, and offer ideas for
the content of the ceremony. You should also involve the troop
parent committee (those parents who help out in the troop setting)
invite the girls' families to attend.
At the bridging ceremony, girls
may receive the following insignia and awards:
to Juniors award patch - if earned
star with green disk
Remember, all Brownies
receive their wings when they "fly up". This age level is the
only one that is allowed to fly up, all others only bridge.
