Southampton's very own Student Scout and Guide Organisation!
Do you want to learn new skills working with young people and make lifelong friends? If so, the Southampton Student Scout and Guide Organisation (Southampton SSAGO) is for you!
We are a University of Southampton society, mainly interested in volunteering in the local Scouting and Guiding community.
However, even if you’re not involved, we welcome anyone who is interested in Scouting and Guiding associated activities – from camping to bake-offs, campfires to film nights, pub crawls to hiking, and much more!
If you want to work towards your Duke of Edinburgh’s Gold Award, the world's leading youth achievement award, recognised in over 144 nations, then we are the group to help you achieve it.
We are a social club at the University of Southampton- made up of all sorts of people, but you don't have to actually be involved with Scouting or Guiding to join us! We welcome anyone who is interested in Scouts and Guides. From Camping to Biscuit Decoration Evenings, Campfires to Film Nights, Pub Crawls to Go Karting, we generally do enough activities that one will be perfect for you!
