In Girl Scouting you can find many reasons to plan a ceremony. Girl Scouting has celebrations, special days, and traditions that help mark the passing of the year. A troop may chose to celebrate a birthday, a holiday, an achievement, an advancement, or any other event they wish to choose. Celebrating these days/events together helps to foster a sense of belonging. Also, through certain ceremonies, a sense of historical understanding and the understanding of the larger organization of which they are members.
