By taking part in this each Young Person who takes part will be entitled to 1 Night Away for each night they participate (as long as they aren’t sleeping in their bed). To qualify for a night away each young person must:
o Pack a bag – what needed for that nights sleep.
o Pitch a tent or just sleep under the stars in your garden / build a den at home (whatever you can do).
o Sleep in your shelter of choice.
o Build a virtual ‘campfire’.
o Take part in a “Scouty activity” – lots of activities from 5 minutes to 2 hours are covered in the “Great Indoors” on the Scout Association web site – https://www.scouts.org.uk/the-great-indoors/ .
o Help with cooking a meal.
Take a photo and share with your young person’s section leader to claim a night away.
There is nothing wrong with parents joining in as well and experience looking up at the stars in the night
and hearing the dawn chorus from a completely new perspective.
Please ensure that every thing is carried out safely.
