Guide to GS Investiture & Rededication Ceremonies

Long time Girl Scout leader and volunteer Denise put together a guide to investiture and rededication ceremonies. You can download the file as a pdf.

Investiture welcomes new members, girls or adults, into the Girl Scout family for the first time. Girls receive their Girl Scout, Girl Scout Brownie, or Girl Scout Daisy pin at this time.

Rededication ceremonies are an opportunity for girls and adults to renew their commitment to the Girl Scout Promise and Law.

Tips for Holding Ceremonies

  1. Devote sufficient time to planning the ceremony. Good ceremonies have a clear purpose and enrich the meaning and mood of the ceremony.
  2. Use Journey adult guides and The Girl’s Guide to Girl Scouting to help girls plan their ceremonies.
  3. Take safety precautions when using candles or fires, or when the girls construct bridges or platforms. Refer to Volunteer Essentials and the Safety Activity Checkpoints (available through your council) for specific advice.
  4. Add personal elements to traditional ceremonies. Use favorite poems, songs, stories, and sayings, or have the girls write something new.
  5. Consider the role of colors and symbols that the girls might use in their ceremony.
  6. Observe flag etiquette when the girls hold flag ceremonies.
