Nights away planning toolkit

Camps build friendships, instil independence and develop confidence. They also open up a whole range of opportunities to enjoy an outdoor adventure that you can’t always access at your local scout hall.

We've gathered some resources and information to help you plan a successful summer camp, whatever type of event you're planning.

While young people don't  necessarily join scouting for, camping or nights away experiences, they are undoubtely a key part of the appeal. When asked about their favourite activities , young people repeatedly list camping in the top three activities that we offer!

This toolkit is designed to assist you with the planning of a camping or residential experience. It brings together all the necessary forms to help you plan and provide a successful, exciting, stress free Pack Holiday or Camp.
