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.
As well as attending national rallies and balls, 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.
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 or find us on facebook :)
We currently have 40 active members.
Our current chair is Rhys Peploe.
ShiT (Tim around children) is a big red woollen spider with pipe-cleaner legs. He is very old and wise and fragile which makes him completely unstealable. You will meet with significant resistance if you attempt to take him.
ShiT's babies are stealable, they're much smaller multi-coloured pom-pom spiders and are carried by Lancaster SSAGO members.
We're not huge fans of mascot stealing because we lovingly make our own mini-ShiTs so please be nice to us.
