Nights Away Notification
This form provides the information a Commissioner requires to APPROVE an event to take place (i.e. POR 9.1b/9.1c). The Permit holder is responsible for ensuring that the appropriate Commissioner is informed about each Colony, Pack, Troop, or Unit attending a nights away event (even a District or County event). This can also be done online in the event function of Compass. For all Nights Away experiences all of the information below should be with your District Commissioner (or appointee) SEVEN days before the event (in normal circumstances). How the information is passed on will depend on local arrangements (this may be for example by telephone call, e-mail or fax).

Please check the Prohibited and Restricted Areas Camping Directory on scouts.org.uk to ensure your site does not fall within a restricted area.
