Girls have the opportunity to achieve the prestigious EAGLE RANK.  

Our troop strongly supports the girl-led model of leadership.  Girls are involved in making decisions and planning troop activities, meetings, and service projects. Adults in the troop help guide and counsel the girl leaders. Our goal is for each girl to set goals and be encouraged to attain Scouting’s highest rank of Eagle Scout.

Troop 7192 is part of the Simon Kenton Council of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) that includes 24 counties in Ohio and Kentucky.

The Scoutmaster for 7192 is Janice McDonald, who through Columbus Outdoor Pursuits and OSU Outdoor Education has backpacked parts of the Appalachian Trail, the Pacific Crest Trail, and several trails in Alaska.  She has done week-long bicycle trips on the Cross Ohio Bicycle Adventure (XOBA), the Great Ohio Bicycle Adventure (GOBA) and across the panhandle of Florida.  She enjoys whitewater rafting, canoeing, and kayaking.  She has also camped in most of the U.S. states, Canada, and Western Europe.  She is a former teacher at Fort Hayes Metropolitan Education Center (High School and Career Center) in Columbus.
