Serving University of Cumbria (Lancaster Campus), University of Lancaster
Lancaster SSAGO is one of the largest SSAGOs in the country, we are a very friendly club open to any students from Lancaster University and the University of Cumbria (Lancaster Campus).
We do something different every Tuesday night like game show nights, scavenger hunts, bowling, crafts, and recently a murder mystery night! 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, 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 in Lancaster 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. Can't wait to meet you :)
We currently have 45 active members.
Our current chair is Sam Pring.
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 un-stealable. You will meet with significant resistance if you attempt to take him. ShiT has now retired due to old age and lives with our president full time, however he sometimes makes an appearance at special events!
CaChi is our new mascot and is also a big red woollen spider, and despite him being a lot younger than ShiT he is still incredibly fragile, which means he is also un-stealable.
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!
