About Us

Aber SSAGO serves Scouting and Guiding to students of Aberystwyth University. Our main goal is to support students in finding leadership roles with local Scout and Guide units, so they can help the local units to keep Scouting and Guiding alive and provide the Scouting and Guiding experience to today's children. We also run many events and fundraisers throughout the year to provide a Scouting and Guiding experience to students. We attend as many national SSAGO events as possible and have great fun in doing so.

We welcome all students from Aberystwyth University to join us for weekly events and camps spread throughout the year. You will make many great friends and have a brilliant time with us.

Our mascots

Idris the Dragon (middle) is our stealable Mascot. He replaced our previous stealable mascots in 2014. Our president is in charge of looking after him normally, but at rally's you might find him with any of our members.

Idris' chums; Mary the Badger (left) and James the Sheep (right) also come along to events but are non-stealable (they're just too precious!). They are looked after by out vice-president and secretary.

We also have Anwen the Dragon and Pedr the pterodactyl, they are non-stealable for the time being. They are looked after by our quartermaster and treasurer. They were introduced at our end of year meal in 2017. Anwen the dragon has already gone AWOL though.. :/

All our mascots wear club neckers in miniature form. Here they are preparing for the Bath Masked Ball, 2017.
