Ceremonies: Rededication


2012
01.27

In November, December or January of every year, my troop rededicates itself to Girl Scouting (it usually takes us that long to get back into the swing of things and to fit the ceremony in!) this is a ceremony we used one year. It was originally designed for Brownies, but I think you could use it at any level. Especially a troop that likes to “perform” for a group.

 

Rededication (Humor)

 

Narrator:

 

In Girl Scouting we have one Law with ten parts
 

I will do my best to be honest and fair

(Three girls enter with each holding a glass and one holding a bottle of opened soda. She pours a little into each glass making sure they are equal and says “Now let’s be as fair as we can about this”)

I will do m y best to be friendly and helpful

(A Brownie enters with a lop-sided cake and proudly announces that she helped her mother make this lovely cake. Mother enters with flour all over her and her hair a mess and general disheveled appearance.)

I will do my best to be considerate and caring

(Two girls appear in archway and take turns say “You go first – No you go first” Repeat about four times then both crowd through archway together.)

I will do my best to be courageous and strong

(One girl enters carrying a lion and lifting it over her head)

I will do my best to be responsible for what I say and do

(One girl enters carrying stuffed pet, pretending they are real. They are feeding, watering, brushing and walking them. They also talk to them lovingly.)

I will do my best to respect myself and others

(Two girls enter, each holding a small hand mirror. Looking into the mirror, they say to themselves “I respect you, I respect you” They then turn to each other and repeat the same thing.)

I will do my best to respect authority

(Three girls and an older scout. The girls form a straight line. The older girl gives orders such as “About face”, “Left face”, “Right face” Each girl turns in opposite directions for general confusion)

I will do my best to use resources wisely

(A Scout dressed VERY outlandishly such as purple socks, green skirt, red sweater, blue blouse with everything fitting very poorly.)

She says:

I got all these lovely bargains at half their normal price

 

I will do my best to make the world a better place

(A girl enters with globe)

I will do my best to be a sister to every Girl Scout

(Two girls enter wearing outfits with ribbon around them)

Then they say: Some people say sisters argue

I’m sure this you’ve heard

But the thing that describes us best

You’ll find, inseparables the word

 

Don’t get stuck on the numbers listed above. We would modify it to fit how many girls we had in the troop.
