CUSAGC has good connections with both the Guiding and Scouting communities in the Cambridgeshire area and we also run several events specifically for local groups.
Helping out with a Group
Some of our members take the opportunity to help with local units. Students do not even have to join CUSAGC to take advantage of this, and equally doing so is not a necessary part of membership. The SAGLO (Scout and Guide Liaison Officer) is able to help members find units throughout the year, starting at the Freshers' Fair. We also hold an annual Cheese and Wine evening, usually in March or April, at which local Scouters and Guiders will be present and on the look out for new recruits! Please contact saglo [at] cusagc.org.uk if you would like to know more.
The club runs three days of activities per year which together encompass all agegroups in Scouting and Guiding. These events are organised by our SAGLO (saglo [at] cusagc.org.uk).
In the Easter (i.e. Summer) term, CUSAGC runs BREAM and CuBAA, a craft and activity morning for Rainbows and Beavers followed by an afternoon session for Cubs and Brownies. For more information, see the BREAM and CuBAA page
The biggest, and most rewarding, event of the year is Forward. This is a 10 mile incident hike for Scouts and Guides which grows every year, often with over 30 teams and over 150 participants. CUSAGCers man about five activity checkpoints that test the participants on everything from tent pitching to puzzles to First Aid. To find out more, see the Forward page.
Following comments from past Forward participants, CUSAGC introduced Marathon Challenge in 2005. This is an extended day/night incident hike, open to any members of Scouting, Girlguiding UK or SSAGO aged 14 and over. See our Marathon Challenge page for more details.
