Event Passports – Nights Away

To encourage young people led residential events, such as patrol camps or Explorer Scout expeditions, when you hold a nights away permit, you can grant a nights away passport to an under 18 year old. It will allow the young person to lead a residential event with no Leaders present and will last for a single event.

Before granting a permit, you will need to check that you are happy that the young person has the skills to lead that event safely and successfully, as you remain responsible for the event. The young person given the passport will be leading the event, so it cannot be given if there will be Leaders present running the event who are looking for a way around the Rules as they do not have permits.
