RUSAG (Scouts and Guides)
RUSAG (Reading University Scouts and Guides)
We are a group of students who share an interest in Scouting/Guiding and the great outdoors. We meet on a regular basis and together we organise and run activites, camps and socials. We are an active society and hope to run a great programme of events in the upcoming year, in addittion to offering a link between the university and local scout and guide groups, as well as the local scout networks.
RUSAG is part of SSAGO, the Student Scout and Guide Organisation. This gives us a chance to meet with students from other universities all over the country, who share the same interests. SSAGO also run events throughout the year which, as a RUSAG member, you will be entitled to participate in.
So if you have never heard of a necker, presented with one at birth or somewhere in between we would love to see you! We think that Scouting and Guiding is for everyone and the committee look forward to welcoming new members to our unique society!
We also have strong links with Scout and Guide groups in the local area and are able to help you to find a group to help out in- if that is something you would be interested in, this is not a compulsary part of the society.
The committee is driven to provide a programme that is tailored to the wants and needs of the current society members and will try our upmost to offer as many suggested activities as we can- so if you have a suggestion please let us know!
The last year has seen a great number of exciting activities being offered these includued:
- Camping with the National organisation for Scouts and Guide Societies (SSAGO)
- Joint events with the local network groups, which offer a great opportunity to be involved with the local scouting movement
If you want to join us for these activities it is really important that you pay membership. Once you have paid membership we can then issue you with a RUSAG neckerchief.
- Standard Student membership is £5
- Associate membership is £12
Membership of RUSAG also includes membership of SSAGO (the national Student Scout and Guide Organisation).
