Nights away

To take young people camping (indoor or outdoor), you require a Night's Away Permit. You will need to have some experience at this alongside someone who has a Permit.

Once you have this experience, complete the form below and send/email to the District Commissioner. He will arrange for an Assessor to speak to you and help you through the rest of the process. The Assessor then completes a recommendation to the DC and he will then issue a Permit to you and your online records will be updated.
