Derby University Guides & Scouts

Derby University Guides and Scouts (DUGS) is the gateway to all things scouting and guiding whilst at Derby University. Like scouting and guiding we are proud of the fact that we offer something for everybody, including everything from social opportunities with like-minded Scouting and Guiding friends, entertaining weekends away and much more. Whatever we are doing, it is always accompanied with the smiles and laughter that happens at any Scouting or Guiding event.


New to the Derby area? want an opportunity to continue working as a Scout/Guide leader, or even start your journey in being a leader for other youth sections? then get in touch, we have many contacts that we can use to get you involved with a local group.


DUGS are also proudly associated with the national Student Scout and Guide Organisation (SSAGO), meaning that we also can offer you fun adventures with other SSAGO members from across the UK. This means all sorts of opportunities with usually three big camps (also known as rallies), a ball and even trips abroad. National SSAGO also use a discord server to keep our national community connected, even if the world is in the middle of a pandemic, offering all sorts of interesting challenges and activities.

In the past, we've put on social events, enjoyed national camps, got involved with National "SSAGO goes to Spoons" events, worked with local scout groups by providing support at larger events and even taken part in a few world records, like Camp at Home or Hike to the Moon
