Nights Away in Yellow

Date: 17th May 2021 Author: Alan Henderson

Nights Away Approval Process

The Scout Association are changing the Covid – 19 safe approval process for nights away.

Camps or Residential activities taking place whilst areas are in Yellow must have Covid hazards and controls included within the event risk assessment which is submitted along with the Nights Away Notification Form. This will be checked by someone within the District and like any overnight event requires DC approval but does not need to go through the restart risk assessment smartsheet process.

Those organising camps or residentials MUST show how they comply with current government guidance on numbers, social distancing and safe use of accommodation and sleeping areas.

Given the additional requirements, please ensure that you submit your Nights Away Notification in plenty of time.

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