The Value of Ceremonies


Ceremonies give a sense of belonging and of achievement. Be the traditional or ceremonies that the Guides have created and carried out themselves.

In order to create a ceremony the Guides first witness and learn about different ceremonies.  The Promise, Flag Protacol involving unfurling of the Flag, Flag Flying, protecting the Flag,  receiving awards are a few repeatitive ceremonies that are carried out within Guiding.

Sometimes different symbols and familiar items are among the things there when the ceremonies begin.  Things like pictures, songs, toys, teddies, seats, buildings, trees.
