BRIDGING / FLY-UP
Take my hand in friendship
I give to you this day.
Remember all the good timesWe 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 campfiresWith new friends that we have found.
Take my hand in giving
Our knowledge of true scouts
To girls we meet and talk toWho have so many doubts.
Take my hand in thanking
Our leaders and our guides
With sincere appreciationFor standing by our side.
Take my hand in eagerness
To be an older scout.
We’re proud to be a fly-upIt’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 LawEach 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)
