Brownie Girl Scout Investiture – (FREE PRINTABLE GUIDE)
Every Girl Scout troop should have an investiture ceremony to officially welcome new members to the troop and introduce them to its traditions. Brownies is a special program within Girl Scouts for younger girls, so naturally an appropriate Brownie Girl Scout Investiture is important.
To help you get started, we have put together this free printable guide for your Brownie Girl Scout Investiture Ceremony. This guide includes all the information you need to get organized for your investiture ceremony, including:
- Instructions for what to do before the ceremony
- A step-by-step outline of the ceremony
- Sample Daisy Investiture Ceremony
- Tips for getting started with Brownie Girl Scouts
- Basic outlines for the first six Girl Scout Brownie meetings
Before the Ceremony
Before the ceremony, it’s important to get familiar with the traditional Girl Scout ceremonies and celebrations. To help you get started, you can find Traditional Girl Scout Ceremonies and Celebrations in the Ceremonies-Manual.pdf, which includes the basic guidelines for creating your own ceremony.
The ceremony should begin with a welcome to the girls about to join the troop and to their families. During the ceremony, guests and members of the troop should be presented with the Girl Scout Promise, Law, and Motto. This is followed by the pinning of the Girl Scout pins on each of the new members. After that, the girls and their families should be invited to participate in the Girl Scout Handshake – a three-part gesture that pays respect to the Girl Scout tradition.
Tips for Getting Started with Brownie Girl Scouts
If you need an extra bit of help getting organized for your investiture ceremony, the TIPS Booklet Brownie.pdf can provide you with a great deal of useful advice. This booklet is designed to help leaders get a good start with their Brownie Girl Scout Troop. It includes practical information about topics such as dealing with challenging behavior, how to hold productive meetings, and activities you can do with your troop.
Basic Outlines for the First Six Girl Scout Brownie Meetings
For the first few meetings, it can be difficult to come up with activities and material for your troop. To make things easier, we have included basic outlines for the first six Girl Scout Brownie meetings in the GSVSC Brownie First 6 Mtgs.pdf. They provide a great starting point and can be adjusted to fit your own troop.
We hope that this guide has provided you with the information and resources you need to host a successful and meaningful investiture ceremony for your Brownie Girl Scout troop. Good luck!
