As they build leadership skills, they also develop lifelong
friendships and earn meaningful awards, two of many treasured
traditions in the sisterhood of Girl Scouting.
Throughout the long history of Girl Scouts, certain traditions
remain meaningful and important and are still practiced today.
Girl Scouts ceremonies are used not only to celebrate
accomplishments, experience time-honored traditions, and reinforce the
values of the Girl Scout Promise and Law, but also to encourage girls
to take a short pause in their busy lives and connect with their
fellow Girl Scouts in fun and meaningful ways.
The following are some traditions troops have used for girl-led
governance, but these are just examples. National Leadership Journeys
offer examples of team decisionmaking, too.
