Ceremonies & Traditions Resources

Ceremonies help Girl Scouts mark special events throughout the year, such as bridging to another level, earning a National Leadership Journey award, or getting a Girl Scout pin.

Traditions give Girl Scouts a sense of history—and inspire them to be the best they can be.

Planning Large Events Training

Planning Large Events training is for any volunteer who is running an event for their Service Unit, a group of troops (over 4) or Council-wide. A large event is broadly defined as any event organized by Girl Scouts generally for Girl Scouts. This training is also helpful for Service Unit Team members who are assisting in the coordinator of Service Unit events.

This is a required training to run a large event and completion of this training will be posted on the GSOC training records.

Register now for an upcoming Planning Large Events training.

SWAPS Resources

Girl Scouts often make small tokens of friendship to exchange with the Girl Scouts they meet while traveling. These little gifts are called ”SWAPS,” which stands for “Special Whatchamacallits Affectionately Pinned Somewhere.”
