SCOGUI meet every Tuesday and get up to all sorts such as campfires, pioneering competitions, games nights, Trangia cooking challenges, craft evenings, woodwork… The programme is planned and delivered by the committee together with other members of the society.

We also have occasional day trips throughout the year such as a walk in Bradgate Park and visit to the National Space Centre. We go camping 3-4 times a year – including a Freshers’ Camp in October, and a Summer Camp at the end of the academic year.

See below for the current term’s programme. Please note: evenings are subject to last minute change due to poor weather conditions, or committee availability. If you’d be interested in joining during the Give It A Go period, please feel free to contact for further details, or just come along at the specified time!

Programme: Autumn 2023

Meetings marked GIAG are within LSU’s Give It A Go period, so you can try SCOGUI out without buying our membership.
