WHAT IS A BRIDGING CEREMONY?
For those of you new to scouting, our bridging ceremony is when we have our scouts “bridge” to their next level in scouting. Scouts will receive their new books, hats, and scarves along with any awards (like belt loops and pins) that they have earned since our last pack meeting.
Scouts should wear their Class A Uniforms. It is an outdoor event and all family members are welcome. There is a camp out after the event for the new Webelos I and Webelos II’s (the current Bear and Web I’s … if that makes sense). Scouts who are camping should arrive early to set up their tent. They will need to fill out a permission slip as well. A parent is required to stay for the camp out.
The main meal is provided and dens are responsible for bringing sides.
TIGERS – Watermelon, chips, lettuce, tomato and onion for burgers
WOLVES – Salads, Vegetable Platters and Ranch dressing for salads
BEARS – Desserts and Chips
WEB I – Baked Beans, Mac-n-Cheese, and Pasta Salads
