Camping and Residential Experiences Updated Guidance

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 for youth work (which includes The Scouts) in parts of the country in levels 0,1 & 2 of the Scottish Government Strategic Framework with effect from 31 May 2021.

Please take time to read the guidance carefully and work with your leadership team to plan camps and residential experiences in line with the guidance and taking into account the procedures for planning a nights away experience and requesting the approval through that process.

Please note that maximum numbers may change as we progress through the strategic framework and if that happens, we will update District Commissioners appropriately and update our Coronavirus webpage.

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 planning alternatives or the loss of deposits and communicated to parents.

This is a fantastic first step in getting back into the outdoors.
