Blackburn District Scouts

Delivering Scouting to Young People in the Blackburn Area

Canalside offers a wide range of activities for your Group.

All facilities are well maintained by a dedicated team of volunteers in the Canalside Active Support Unit. Most activities are self led by your group. Groups wanting to access the facilities will need to complete a site induction. Once this is complete, then Groups are free to book site activities.

There is a list of the activities we offer below, along with details. We simply charge £1 per young person per session to help with maintenence costs and equipment replacement.

For example if you book soft archery, catapults and fires for 3 hours on a Saturday the cost is just £1 per young person.
