Loughborough Students’ Scout and Guide Club, more commonly know as SCOGUI, are a Loughborough Students Union (LSU) society who welcome all students from the university, whether you have been a member of either movement or not!

It’s hard to describe exactly what SCOGUI does, because we have a go at almost everything, but in short, we love to have fun, go on adventures and challenge ourselves to try new things. If you’d like to find out a little bit more about who we are and what we do, then keep reading, but you can also check out our Facebook page, Twitter feed, or YouTube channel.

If you want to join SCOGUI then you’ll need to head over to our LSU site, but it will give you access to all of the following:

– Weekly meetings/activities on Tuesday evenings
– Four camping trips per year (October, May, June and August)
– Three SSAGO camps per year (SSAGO is the Student Scout and Guide Organisation) and one SSAGO ball
– Plus various other socials throughout the year! (Club Members have even been known to organise their own unofficial ones!)

The perfect time to join is during freshers! We’ll be at the Union Bazaar so you can come down and have a chat with our members.

If you can’t make the bazaar or would like more information please email our Publicity Officer.


SCOGUI has a fantastic committee who keep the club running. They are always happy to chat, and if you want to get involved in helping out with anything, let them know!

Many members of SCOGUI work within the community as leaders and unit helpers of local units of the Scouting Association and Girl Guiding UK. We also lend a hand at annual Scout and Guide events, as well as organising a Scout and Guide Night Hike for Loughborough District.

SCOGUI also have connections with Loughborough Scout Network and Girl Guiding Senior Section. We can help support you through Guiding/Scouting ventures such as DofE or Queen’s Scout/Guide awards.
