Lancaster SSAGO is a medium-sized and very friendly club which is open to any students from Lancaster University and the University of Cumbria. We do something fun every Tuesday night like film and pizza nights in the campus cinema, scavenger hunts around campus, bowling and board games - and after the exciting bits we usually go and have a quiet drink in a college bar. At the moment, we are having weekly zoom socials from 7:30pm on Tuesdays, doing activities such as quizzes, crafts, murder mystery nights, and gameshows!
We’re part of a national network (SSAGO, the Student Scout And Guide Organisation) of over 40 universities which means we can offer the unique opportunity to travel around and meet with students with similar interests from across the UK at rallies (big national camps) held every term and our annual ball, where a range of activities are on offer - including hiking, trampolining, climbing, kayaking, bar crawls, and, of course, a campfire!
We organise two of our own camps every year too; a weekend Freshers' Camp in November and a whole week Summer Camp in the penultimate week of the year. We also hold an alumni sleepover in a scout hut in Lancaster in Lent term where we meet up with our graduate friends!
For those who wish to volunteer, we work closely with both Scouting and Guiding so there are numerous opportunities to get involved with local Groups and Units.
Membership currently only costs £2 per term!
We’re open to everyone, including those who’ve never been involved with Scouts or Guides before, so do come along - we’d love to meet you, and our socials are an excellent way of making new friends and trying out things you wouldn't usually do! And we're all lovely, so if you have any questions at all then just email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) or find us on facebook
