Nights away are an important part of Scouting and in Basingstoke West we are very happy to support any leaders with their nights away event. From a simple green field camp to staying overnight on a boat, nights away as part of Scouting bring lifelong memories for those taking part.
Nights away permit scheme
The Nights Away Permit Scheme promotes quality residential and camping experiences. It shows that all those leading nights away events for young people within Scouting have the skills, experience and personal suitability to take young people away safely.
If you are considering gaining a nights away permit, then more information can be found on the Scouts.org.uk website https://www.scouts.org.uk/volunteers/running-your-section/nights-away-and-camping/nights-away-permit-scheme/the-nights-away-permit-scheme/
Nights Away Notification (NAN)
All leaders that are planning a nights away event must submit a nights away notification (NAN) form.
