OUSGG - the Oxford University Scout and Guide Group - is a society for people interested in maintaining or establishing an association with the Scouting and/or Guiding Movements. It was founded in 1919, making it the oldest University Scout and Guide Group in the country, and the second oldest in the world.
It is an active society with a diverse programme during both term-time and vacations. We don't wear uniforms, do badgework or have leaders. We do however do pretty much any other activity you can think of! Recently, this has included:
- Boating (in France)
- High Ropes Courses
- Pub Quizzes
- Safari Supper
- Theatre Trips
- Wide Games
- Wine Tasting
We're affliliated to SSAGO, the Student Scout and Guide Organisation, which has members and clubs at most universities in the UK.
