GS Bridging & Joyschool pool parties



Take my hand in friendship

I give to you this day.

Remember all the good times

We had along the way.


Take my hand in helping

Other people that we know.

The more we give to others,

The more that we will grow.


Take my hand in learning

To camp on nature’s ground.

Enjoying trails and campfires

With new friends that we have found.


Take my hand in giving

Our knowledge of true scouts

To girls we meet and talk to

Who have so many doubts.


Take my hand in thanking

Our leaders and our guides

With sincere appreciation

For standing by our side.


Take my hand in eagerness

To be an older scout.

We’re proud to be a fly-up

It’s what we’re going to shout.


So, take my hand to follow

New scouting paths in sight.

We’ll join hands with each other

And in friendship we’ll unite.


We give our thanks in promise

To hold our country dear,

And abide the Girl Scout Law

Each day throughout the year.

The poem above is what they are saying before going up "the bridge" and down the slide into the pool. (James, Autumn, and a few other kids were a bit impatient for the ceremony to be over, that's who you hear in the background)
