Bring your troop together and show us your creative side, call attention to a cause important to your troop or just have some fun with decorating!

Girl Scouts throughout Westchester County and surrounding areas can be part of the Lasdon Train Show. Girl Scout Troops can adopt a tree to decorate!* Show your troops creative side, call attention to a cause important to your troop or just have some fun with decorating!

Your tree will become part of our Holiday on the Hill Train Show. Last year, almost 8,000 visitors viewed our girl scout creations! A sign recognizing your troop will be displayed next to your tree. Each child will receive a Lasdon Park “fun badge” as well as have the opportunity to work toward their own badges. Lastly, each child will receive a free pass to the Holiday on the Hill Train Show.
For additional information please contact the park at (914) 864-7263.  Please note, space is limited and participants will be taken on a first come first served basis.
