The Student Scout and Guide Organisation (SSAGO) is a non-uniformed organisation that enables you to continue or begin your Scouting or Guiding journey whilst at College or University.

As a National Organisation, they have clubs at over 39 colleges and universities across the United Kingdom - with BUGS being one of these.

Why would I want to join it?

SSAGO provides anyone with the oppotunity to meet with Students with similar interests and offers connections to the local Districts and Counties that will help you get involved in being a Leader and local sections Within the club you have the opportunity to participate in a diverse range of activities. There are National Rallies 3 times a year, a formal event and most members participate in a medley of local and National competitions together.

Here are just a few reasons why you should join SSAGO:

  • Make new friends, from having a set of people from the moment you arrive, to continually meeting new people and making new friends with students with similar interests, united by Scouting & Guiding.
  • Volunteer and lead and develop your skills and abilities, learn new things, and put your skills to use both within your local community and through SSAGO and new opportunities to get involved!
  • Have fun and try new things, enjoying weekly activities at your local SSAGO group based at your university, with activities from archery to zorbing, kayaking to hiking, camps throughout the year, international trips, relaxing around the campfire and more!
  • National and international events, with 3 national Rally camps packed full of activities where every SSAGO club from every university comes together, a formal Ball and international trips and a host of other national activities, there's always something to do!
