We have one Beaver Scout Colony for the under 8s, one Cub Scout Pack for the 8-10 1/2 year olds, a Scout Troop for young people aged 10 1/2 -14 years.
Beaver Scouts are our youngest members. They consist of smaller groups of Beavers called lodges. They meet weekly to take part in a wide range of activities including games, crafts, singing, visits and good turns, along with plenty of outdoor activities. They will also have the opportunity to take part in the fun and excitement of camps and sleepovers. It may be the first time they spend a night away from home so it’s a real adventure for them. Meeting times are Tuesday`s during term time between 5:45 and 7:15pm
A cub scout pack consists of smaller groups called sixes. Cubs take part in a wide range of activities designed to be interesting and challenge them. A cub scout meeting consists of games and activities with plenty of time outdoors. Camps and holidays are some of the most memorable events of the year for cubs. Meeting times are Thursday`s during term time between 6:30 and 8:00pm
Each scout troop consists of a small unit of six to eight scouts called a patrol, usually led by a patrol leader. Outdoor activities feature prominently in the scout troop, with the highlight being camping. Throughout the year, scouts learn various skills, such as map reading, camp cooking and first aid. Rock climbing, walking, pioneering, swimming and international experiences are just some things they get up to. Meeting times are Monday`s during term time between 7:00 and 8:30pm
Subs are £2 per week payable during term time.
Our team of adult leaders is made up of dedicated volunteers from Laceby and surrounding areas – they are the people who make Scouting happen in the Group. For most of the week they are busy engineers, teachers, you name it, but the rest of the time they are the heart and soul of what we do.

Parent or helper rotas are vital for scouting to continue. In order to run meetings successfully we need the right numbers of adult to children, both legally and practically. Both Beavers and Cubs currently have parent rotas, which are posted online so that you can keep, track of which weeks your helping with. If you cant make a week we encourage you to try and swap with someone and let the group leader know, or failing that let the group leader know asap. Both the rotas for beavers and cubs can be found under the program for each group on OSM.
Well we are a uniformed organisation so we do need our members in uniform! However if you are just starting out, don’t go and buy one until your child is happy they want to continue in scouting. Uniforms can usually be bought from any school uniform shop, from the scouting online shop, shop.scouts.org.uk, amazon, ebay or even from a parent of a scout that has just moved up a group! more details on uniform can be found on our Uniform page.
