Annual statewide bridging ceremony at Royal Gorge Bridge

As of March 16, 2020, this event has been canceled. We are working on an alternative date and will share it with you as soon as we have it.

A bridging ceremony is an important transition in a Girl Scout’s life. It’s a defining moment when a girl celebrates her achievements and prepares for new adventures and responsibilities. Once a girl bridges to a higher level of Girl Scouts, her leadership skills and the experiences she will have continue to grow. Girl Scouts is not simply an after-school activity, it’s the Girl Scout Leadership Experience that builds as girls progress through the program that gives girls the skills they need to empower themselves to take their place as future leaders.

Join Girl Scouts from across Colorado at our annual statewide bridging ceremony on the Royal Gorge Bridge – the highest suspension bridge in the United States! We will have an official crossing of the bridge on Saturday, May 2, 2020 at 11 a.m. and will host a reception after. Register here:

After crossing the bridge, you’ll check in at the Girl Scout table outside the reception area. The reception includes cupcakes, lemonade, and activities led by GSCO staff. Girl Scouts of Colorado reception:

  1. $5 per Girl Scout (includes patch)

  2. $3 per friends, family, tagalongs

All attendees must also pay $19 per person for discounted admission into the Park, which is good all day. Your discounted admission covers access to the park, bridge, theater, children’s play land, unlimited Gondola rides, and any other seasonally available attractions and entertainment. It is not necessary to pre-purchase your tickets to the Park, no matter how many you purchase. All tickets to enter the park will be sold at the Visitor Center the morning of the event.

Anyone is welcome to enter the park and participate in the bridging ceremony at 11 a.m. without attending the Girl Scout reception after.
