Changes to nights away guidance from 21st June

17 June 2021

Following the Government announcement on Monday, we’re pleased to update that from 21st June there will be some changes to the way that we can deliver nights away activities.

The Government have confirmed that residential activities can take place from Monday with up to 30 young people present. Leaders and carers are permitted to take part in addition to this number, but numbers must be reasonable enough to deliver the experience safely.

Also, although groups of young people can increase to 30 from one Section in a Group, sleeping must be in tents or rooms of no more than six people and COVID-19 safety measures must remain in place, such as social distancing, face coverings and good hygiene arrangements.

Nights away activities are still limited to a single Section within the Scout Group and must remain independent of all others.

It’s important to make sure that safety remains at the forefront of our plans, so we’re working to see how it might be possible to run a summer camp for Scouts.

We’ll let you know more when we can.
