Camping and Residential activities are at the heart of what we do as Scouts, and we know that this level of activity has been the most impacted over the past year.

The Scottish Government has now provided a route plan for the recommencement of these activities with effect from 31 May 2021. Please remember these arrangements can change at short notice and may mean that an event has to be cancelled or postponed. This needs to be considered in regard to loss of deposits and communicated to parents.

Before any planning starts it is essential that you read through the guidance relating to planning COVID safe nights away. In particular, note the different procedures for the approval of COVID risk assessments in relation to Nights Away experiences. Use the UK guidance for Nights Away alongside this factsheet, in respect to the rules in Scotland.
