About Us

The 26th Leicester (Blaby) Scout group belongs to the Leicester South West District and was formed in 1952.  Over the years we have introduced 1000’s of children and adults into the Scouting ways. In 2001, our purpose-built headquarters were opened, located behind where the Leicestershire Scouts’ County HQ used to be, on the South Eastern edge of Blaby:

We are a large group, with around 100 members. We have a Beaver Colony, a Cub Pack, a Scout Troop and an Explorer Scout section. Please see the individual pages for details of when they meet.

Please contact us or explore the rest of this website for further information. We are particularly interested to hear from anyone who has any more information about the history of our group, as well as anyone who is interested in joining us in a leadership role.

Activities are the biggest part of Scouting and can be part of the weekly meeting, such as games, cooking, tracking, or a trip. As a group we organise many camps throughout the year. Although it is not until Cubs when young people get to camp out, Beavers are invited to spend the day on some camps, as well as having their own activity days and indoor sleepovers. Scouts, Explorers and Network Scouts get the opportunity to camp several times a year, with a winter camp for the older Scouts, early summer group camp and the week long annual summer camp to look forward to. Cubs have their own weekend camp as well as the opportunity to join a district camp.
