Nights Away Permit Scheme - Advice Evening

We are running a series of events in the next few months to help leaders get a Nights Away Permit. These are planned to help you gain the skills necessary and progress quickly to achieving your permit. You will not gain a permit just by attending these events but you will know exactly what you will need to do to complete the assessment. If are unsure please come along to the advice evening, you can sign up for the additional two events after this.

1.   Advice Evening
This is an evening designed to help individuals decide what their personal needs are to achieve their permit. At the start of the evening there will be a short presentation which will explain how the scheme works and what is needed to obtain a permit. There will then be a Q & A session giving an opportunity for general questions. This will conclude the more formal part of the evening, after this we will have 4 or 5 Nights Away Assessors available to answer individual queries and provide advice on individual learning needs and identify learning opportunities.

2.   Learning Opportunity - Administration for a Nights Away Event
This will provide the skills and understanding needed to navigate through the administration needs for a Nights Away Event. It is a full day event being held
on Saturday 14th April starting at 0930 and finishing by 1700 at 8th Horbury Scout HQ, The Wharfe, Bridge Road, Horbury Bridge, WAKEFIELD, WF4 5PP

3.  Learning Opportunity - Practical Skills for a Nights Away Event
This exactly what it says, it is slanted more towards the camping element but even for members wanting an indoor permits quite a few skills will be helpful and who knows, in the future you may want to upgrade your permit. It is two day event being held on Saturday & Sunday 19th/20th May starting at 0900 and finishing by 1600 on Sunday. This will be held at Bramhope Campsite.  

During the weekend you will have opportunities for learning new practical skills, putting up different types of tents, cooking on an open fire, backwoods cooking as well as putting some of the theoretical skills into practice.
Having completed the course(s) you will then go away and take part in residential experiences with your group, under an experienced leader who has already gained a Camp Permit, this might just be one event or as many as necessary, we will help you decide.
