A Scout or Explorer who wishes to lead a camping or residential event can do by being issued with an Event Passport.
An Event Passport is only valid for that particular event and is issued by a Nights Away permit holder with experience in the same type of event.
The permit holder must provide support during both the preparation and the event itself and be satisfied that the young person has the required abilities, but is not required to attend the event.
Event Passports cannot be given to anyone aged over 18 and cannot be used for joint explorer Scout/Scout Network events.
As part of the planning process parents must be informed of no leaders being present and of the supervision arrangements for a residential event using an event Passport and be satisfied with them prior to consenting to their child taking part
