Nights Away Permits

Do you want to take the young people within your section on a Nights Away? whether it is indoors, campsite or on a green field…….?

If you do then everyone who leads a nights away event for young people within Scouting is required to hold a Nights Away Permit for the type of event they are running.

Within Central Yorkshire we have 2 opportunities to help you achieve your goal…

1) Sunday 24th March 2019 at 1st Pontefract Scout Headquarters – the administration side of organising a Nights Away event

2) Saturday 13th – Sunday 14th April 2019 at Bramhope – the practical side of organising an event, learning the skills you need….

If you want to attend either event please book your place at

Limited spaces are available……on 27th February we have increased the number of places for the practical course due to high demand… avoid disappointment please book asap.  Bookings close 7 days prior to each opportunity or when the course is full.

If you have any questions please get in touch with Alison Fell, County Training Manager at or John Smallwood, Supporter Nights Away Permit Scheme at

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
