Birmingham University Scouts and Guides (BUSAG) welcomes Scouts, Guides, and anyone with no experience of the two movements.
BUSAG meet weekly (usually Wednesday 1-2pm) to take part in all kinds of activities, from visiting interesting places to learning new skills. The meetings are complemented by a large social calendar which ranges from film nights to society nights out. We pride ourselves on the fact that BUSAG are the only society at The University of Birmingham who offer the chance to complete the Duke of Edinburgh Award with our partnership with Birmingham Scouts. A key part of both movements is volunteering,e BUSAG have strong links with the local Guiding units and Scout groups and love to help point our members in the right direction if they want to volunteer locally.
By joining BUSAG you are also joining The Student Scout and Guide Association (SSAGO) who bring together over 40 colleges and universities for national events each term such as rallies. Where over 300 student Scouts and Guides camp together for an action-packed weekend, and the annual ball.
Membership for BUSAG is a student-friendly £5 which provides most of the weekly meetings at no cost and covers the national SSAGO membership fee. We also welcome Scouts and Guides from other universities around Birmingham.
