Nights Away

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.

There are various resources and directories available to help you plan, train for and carry out residential events, from directories of venues available, through to details of how to gain a nights away permit that will allow you to lead these events.


Multi Module training weekends are being held at Plymouth on 5th/6th October and at Exeter 16th/17th November. More details as we get them but save the date if you need the training or validation.

The NEW county training team has promised one FIRST AID course and one safeguarding in each district before Christmas (this year!) Dates and joining details will be published for our District and surrounding Districts as soon as I have them.
