4th Ashby de la Zouch Scout Group offers Beavers, Cubs & Scouts to young people in Ashby de la Zouch in Leicestershire. We also have members from Packington, Normanton le Heath, Heather, Osgathorpe, Moira, Coleorton and more.
Over 175 young people take part in regular meetings each week where we have fun and games and try new things. We also camp, a lot, and have activity sessions from canoeing, kayaking, climbing, abseiling, potholing, orienteering and shooting.
During the last few years, we have grown capacity so we can take more young people than ever. Get in touch today to register your interest!
Our leaders are all volunteers, we rely on them and our parents to make all of this happen but it isn’t a chore. It’s a great deal of fun and incredibly rewarding.

Formed in 1976, the group was initially the 4th Ashby (Baptist) Scout Group and then moved to the Methodist Chapel before settling in with Ashby (Hastings) Scout Group, the other group in town, in 2001.
We meet at The BP Shell Scout Centre, Wilfred Gardens, Ashby de la Zouch, Leicestershire, LE65 2GX. We also make regular use of Willesley Scout Campsite.
On 31st January each year, we complete an annual return to UK Scout Headquarters. Here, for those who may be interested, is a summary:
