To encourage young people led residential events, such as patrol
camps or Explorer Scout expeditions, an Explorer Leader (who holds a
nights away permit) can grant a nights away / events passport to an
under 18 year old.
The â€˜nights away / event passportâ€™ allows a young person to
things to remember when applying for a â€˜nights away /events passportâ€™
1. Explorer Leaders are volunteers â€“ it can take up to 3 days to process
the passport form.
2. A â€˜nights away/events passportâ€™ is awarded to â€˜one Explorerâ€™ that
leads the rest of the Explorers on the trip i.e. the person applying for
the passport becomes the leader of the trip.
3. Before granting a passport leaders will need to check that they are
happy that the Explorer has the skills to lead the event safely and
4. There will be â€˜spot checksâ€™ by leaders happening on events where
passports have been awarded.
5. Donâ€™t forget for overnight activities e.g. overnight hikes, Explorers
need to apply for a passport.
