What we’re all about
Have you been involved with Scouting or Guiding forever? Were you once a Scout or Guide? Have you never even heard of them? Come and join our society. We're a relaxed group with a passion for camping and fire, like any Network or Senior Section.
LUUSAG (Leeds University Union Scouts and Guides), is affiliated to SSAGO, the National Student Scout and Guide Organisation. SSAGO is a non-uniformed organisation affiliated to The Scouts and Girl Guiding UK. Local SSAGO groups are designed to allow Scout and Guide members to continue with their interests whilst at universities, and encourage new members to get involved. We are able to connect you to local Scout and Guide units if you would like to volunteer, however this is not compulsory.
We have members from the University of Leeds, Leeds Beckett University, Leeds Music College and Leeds Trinity.
We meet twice weekly: a chilled pub lunch in Old Bar and another varying activity. This term we've got events including bouldering, hiking, a trip to the Christmas markets and bonfire celebrations.
We also get the chance to spend time away from uni, get outdoors and go exploring. We have three national rallies a year as well as freshers camp and our very own Summer and Reunion camps. Freshers camp in October was hosted by Hull SSAGO. Rallies this year where Lancaster in November, Nottingham in February, followed by Scot Rally this summer. Ball this year is being hosted by Aberystwyth University and has been titled "Aber does Abba!"
