Nights Away

Nights Away

During these strange times the rules around the “Nights Away Badge” have been relaxed.

If your young person takes part in one of the District Camps at home or any other fun overnight activities we can make sure your child earns a nights away.

Nights away are a staged badge and are totalled up throughout their whole time in scouting. The levels are 1,2,3,4,5,10,15,20,35,50,75,100,125,150,175,200.

For example if your young person is currently on 10 nights away and has their 10 Nights Away badge, they would need to accumulate a further 5 nights away to reach 15 nights away before being awarded their next badge.

Examples of a nights away activities could include camping in the back garden, camping in the living room, building a shelter inside or in the garden and sleeping in it over night.

If you complete any of these over activities or something similar, please let us know by completing this form.

Scouting provides a second family to lots of young people. It’s a safe place where they can aspire and grow.'
