As Scouts, we believe in preparing young people with skills for life. We encourage our young people to do more, learn more and be more.

About Us

The 6th Hinckley Scouts group was originally formed in 1937, so we have a long history of giving young people in Hinckley the opportunity to enjoy fun and adventure while developing the skills they need to succeed. We’re talking about teamwork, leadership and resilience – skills that have helped Scouts become everything from teachers and social workers to astronauts and Olympians.

We believe in bringing people together. We celebrate diversity and stand against intolerance, always. We’re part of a worldwide movement, creating stronger communities and inspiring positive futures.

We are proud to say we are a values-based movement. Our Scout values of integrity, respect, care, belief and cooperation guide everything we do.


We currently have Beaver Scouts, Cub Scouts and a new Scouts section.


Ages 6 - 8

Beavers are our youngest members. They 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 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.


Ages 8-10½

Cubs take part in a wide range of activities designed to be interesting and challenging. A Cub Scout meeting consists of games and activities with plenty of time spent outdoors.

Camps and holidays are some of the most memorable events of the year for Cubs.


Ages 10½–14

Outdoor activities feature prominently, with the highlight being camping. Throughout the year, Scouts learn various skills, such as map reading, camp cooking and first aid in preparation for camp.

Rock climbing, potholing, gliding, photography and international experiences are just some of the things they get up to.


Volunteers are critical to the success of the group and our members 

All this is only possible thanks to our adult volunteers. They support our Scouts in a wide range of roles from working directly with young people, to helping manage a Group, to being a charity Trustee. We help volunteers get the most out of their experiences at Scouts by providing opportunities for adventure, training, fun and friendship.

Parents, carers, grandparents, aunt and uncles can volunteer and help in many ways; you don’t have to be a regular Bear Grylls. You might have first aid knowledge that you could teach the group, or you might be able to teach our Scouts a thing or two about DIY.

If you’re good with accounts you could be Group treasurer, or if you’re a culinary whizz you could run cooking sessions with the young people. Everyone has a skill (whether you know it or not) and we can make use of it.

We meet every week during term time at:
- Beavers 18:00 - 19:00
- Cubs 18:00 - 19:00
- Scouts 19:15 - 20:15
