Nights away or residential events, whether camping, hostelling, sleepovers or bivouacs, form an integral part of scouting, and are something that every young person should have the opportunity to take part in.
The district provides support and advice for organising and running nights away. In order to run a nights away event, adult volunteers must hold a nights away permit which is awarded upon successfully completing a Nights Away Assessment.
For further support and advice, please contact one of our District Nights Away Advisors: [email protected]
If you are looking to run an adventurous activity for your section the district can provide you with equipment and qualified instructors. Also if you are looking to gain qualifications to instruct adventurous activities we want to hear from you.
