Golden Gate Bridging is the biggest event of the year for Girl Scouts of Northern California. 7,000 girls and their fellow Girl Scout sisters from across the country cross the iconic Golden Gate Bridge as they transition from Juniors to Cadettes. The bridging is followed by a party on Crissy Field with music, fun activity booths, and the largest friendship circle this side of the Mississippi.

Participating in this special event is a once in a lifetime opportunity and a great introduction to older girl programs and the Girl Scout Leadership Experience.

Volunteer Registration

Volunteers are a vital part of Golden Gate Bridging. Volunteers serve in many capacities from supporting event logistics (parking and buses) to cheering on girls on their bridging journey. All volunteers also receive a commemorative patch and pin as well as coffee and lunch during the event. Generally all members of a group or troop are assigned the same area and time. Groups with youth volunteers must have enough adults to meet the Girl Scout travel ratio guideline of 2 adults to 16 girls and 1 adult for each additional 8 girls.
