Core Features

As with the investiture ceremony, the transition ceremony should have core features that provide a memorable experience for all members of the Unit, particularly the transitioning Scout.

Transition ceremonies should:

  • Involve both the Scouts' previous Unit and their new Unit
  • Mark the journey from one Section to the next
  • Help inspire younger Scouts to continue their Scouting journey to the next Section
  • Be youth-led in a developmentally appropriate way
  • Not be drawn-out – 10 minutes is a good length of time for the ceremony itself
  • Help the new member feel part of something special!

Remember the overall symbolic framework One Program, One Journey: it’s recommended that you draw from your Section’s motto as inspiration for these ceremonies.

Joey Scouts: Discover adventure

Cub Scouts: Create the path

Scouts: Explore the unknown

Venturer Scouts: Look wide

Rover Scouts: Beyond the horizon
