Scout Programs

Girl Scouts

Troops can now earn Legacy Badges! Come this Winter we will be offering Skill Builder Badges. Please click the links below for more information. Please note that upon request you may still earn the old Try-Its.

Boy Scouts

The Turner-Dodge House now offers not only the Achievement programs, but has also added: Electives, Belt Loop and Pin Programs, as well as Merit Badge programs. Please click the links below to learn more.

Create Your Own Schedule

With our new, Create Your Own Schedule, not only can scout leaders register for scheduled programs, but also programs that we do not offer during the regular scheduled times. The Create Your Own Schedule provides the convenience of working with your troops schedule while providing the opportunity for your scouts to achieve badges that we would normally not be able to offer during our scheduled programs. We ask for a troop size of at least eight scouts.

Program fees

BOY/GIRL SCOUTS: $4 per scout, includes activity and activity supplies. (Patches not included)
ADULTS: $2 per adult, if attending. One leader and one co-leader are free.


Please call 517-483-4220 to reserve your spot. Reservations are made on a first come first serve policy.

We accept Visa, Master, and Discover card. Payments may also be made with check or cash.

Here at Lansing Parks and Recreation we strive to provide all of the Lansing community with quality recreational opportunities. One way we do this is through our youth scholarship program. In the economic climate of today we are finding more families in need of this financial assistance. Your donation will help us ensure we are able to offer scholarships to Lansing youth who request assistance.
