Who are we?

We are the Portsmouth University Guides and Scouts (PUGS)! Get in touch to find out how to continue your Scouting or Guiding adventure at the University of Portsmouth!

What do we do?

PUGS are a group of students who are interested in the aims, activities and fun that Scouting and Guiding offers. Our programme consists of weekly events where we organise various activities comprising adventurous, social, creative and community-orientated themes. Join our Facebook group to say up to date with what we're doing this term - Facebook Group

How does COVID-19 affect us?

Covid-19 has affected everyone and everything, however with little restrictions we will be up and running like normal. We will of course follow any guidance for everyone's safety and should the worse happen we have systems in place to continue to bring you fun activities every week. 

Our Discord Server was a great way for our members to stay in contact and will continue to be used so please come and join us there as well as in person!! 

Who can join?

We welcome those who have been involved with The Scout Association, Girlguiding or any other international Guide or Scout Associations as well as those who have never been involved! At Portsmouth SSAGO you can discover Guiding and Scouting through our programme with the added option to gain training and skills in leadership and assistant roles.

Members of PUGS don't have to volunteer with Scouts or Guides at university or home, but many of our members choose to, and if you would like to, just let us know and we can put you in touch with a group that would love your help!

Where can I get involved?

Make sure you stay in touch with us by following us on Twitter and Instagram along with joining our Facebook page and Discord Server:
