Great 48

We are proposing a completely new event idea to SSAGO! For those that know the 24-hour activity camp for Explorer Scouts, Gilwell 24, we are proposing our own similar yet different event and to celebrate 48 years of SSAGO, we present: SSAGO 48!

SSAGO 48 is an event of 48 hours packed full of a wide variety of activities run by SSAGO for SSAGO - but not just SSAGO! Expanding beyond SSAGO, we propose to make the event open to Network and Senior Section Guides (18+) -strategically the target market for those who can join SSAGO!

48 hours doesn't mean you need to stay awake for 48 hours, but that there'll always be something going on, with different activities and events taking place throughout the event. The idea is that everyone who wishes to attend in SSAGO will need to contribute some of their time to the running of the event or running a base or activity, but will then be able to enjoy the rest of the event as a participant. You give a little, you get a lot!

SSAGO Policy Review

We are looking for volunteers to assist us to go through all of our current policy documents and factsheets so we can update and simplify them. It doesn’t matter if you only want to deal with one document or all of them, every contribution will be a great help!

SSAGO Web Team

Have an interest in web development and fancy diving into the SSAGO website, and all its associated systems?

We will be looking to build new areas, new features and update the website to make it the best it can be - responding to the continually changing and growing needs of SSAGO, club committees and the SSAGO membership.

From developing the SSAGO app, the membership system, the events system, building completely new web-based systems, and making everything we have better, there's plenty of opportunities to get involved in very exciting areas - and your ideas are at the forefront of what we work on!

Some degree of computing and development experience is required, but don't worry if you're not an expert - there's plenty of chance to learn as you go!
