PLUGS (Guides and Scouts)



Please log in to join this organisation.




We are a society of Scouts and Guides based at Plymouth University. PLUGS is part of the national Student Scout and Guide Organisation (SSAGO) which allows us to stay in-touch and connected with groups of other like-minded people. SSAGO operates throughout the country and by joining PLUGS you can continue your Scouting and Guiding journeys into your university life. PLUGS provides a relaxing and enjoyable atmosphere where all those that wish to be involved with Scouting and Guiding can meet up and socialise.


PLUGS provides its members with a balanced and varied programme that will, hopefully, cater to everybodies interests. We meet once a week on a Thursday night to take part in a variety of different actitivities, these consist of either a drinking social, an active social or quiet(er) social on a monthly cycle. Over the last year these activities have consisted of a quiz night, a go-karting night, a beach clean and our annual "Drinker's Badge" social. Alongside the weekly activities we attend at least one camping trip per term, these are hosted by other SSAGO clubs all around the country and give a unique opportunity to meet students from other universities all over the country. Recently we have also established monthly hikes to Dartmoor and the local coastline. We can also provide a strong link into local Scouting and Guiding within Plymouth too if you wish to volunteer as a leader.
