The Girls Troop is off and running! We had our first campout at Mohican State Park in June and went kayaking. Our July campout was at Delaware State Park, where we did geocaching, disc golf, hiking, and a tour of the Delaware dam.

The Girl Troop 7192 will implement the same structure, dates and times, and advancement procedures as Troop 192. We may have 1-4 shared campouts annually. We will usually meet in a different room than Troop 192 so that girls have the opportunity to lead other girls.
