Strath Student Scout and Guide Organisation
Mondays at 7pm
Are you or have you ever been a Scout, Guide or interested in meeting up, playing silly games, having fun and making friends?
At Strath SSAGO, we meet weekly for socials, activities, hikes and camping trips. You don't need to be or have ever been a Scout or Guide to join, this club is for everyone! Due to COVID, this is limited to online socials and socially-distanced meetups outside, but this does mean you can join most of our events from anywhere in the world. This semester includes a chip shop challenge, virtual Cludo, Jackbox and a banter baking session! Our programme is entirely based on what our members want to do, if you have any ideas let us know!
The Student Scout and Guide Organisation (SSAGO) is a national non-uniformed organisation that enables you to continue or begin your Scouting or Guiding journey whilst at College or University. There are over 1000 members across the UK, from Aberdeen to Falmouth to Salford to Swansea. As a new club, we get free National Membership so all members will be asked to sign up here to: www.ssago.org
Once joined, you'll receive a club Necker (neckie/neckerchief) and have access to the National website and groups, join the National Discord (including the SSAGO Minecraft server), be able to help at ANY National Scouting and Guiding event, have links to local Scouting and Guiding and come along to all Strath SSAGO Events.
We attend at least 4 National SSAGO events per year across the UK- 3 Rallys (camps) and a ball. As well as this, you will have the opportunity to attend SSAGO events in Ireland, The Netherlands, London and other international Scouting and Guiding Events such as the World Scout Moot in 2021.
Next Camps (COVID-Dependent):

Wales' very own Rally, located near Swansea! Strath will be headed down a day early to explore the beautiful wales.
All SSAGO clubs have a stealable mascot. Clubs are able to steal mascots at any point throughout the year, including National events or from neighbouring clubs flats. Once stolen, they are handed to a National Exec member and the club that stole the mascot comes up with a forfeit. The forfeit is then carried out at National Rallys in front of all attending members. Mascot stealing is an art! Previous forfeits include rolling in mud, being covered in custard and downing dirty pints!
Our mascot is a pink cone called Tennant!
