Nights away or residential events, whether camping, hostelling, sleepovers or bivouacs, form an integral part of scouting, and are something that every young person should have the opportunity to take part in.
A Nights Away Permit is required if you want to organise and run a Nights Away event for your section.
You might find the Applicant’s Guide to the Nights Away Permit scheme useful, so that you understand what you will be assessed on. More importantly please remember, completing module 16 and/or 38 of your adult training will not automatically assess you for a permit, but gaining a Nights Away permit will sign you off on these modules.
You will need to submit details of any previous Nights Away experience you have. You should do this by completing the Nights Away Experience Form and upload it in the application form below where instructed to do so.
IFTAR UNDER THE STARS – DONCASTER
71st Doncaster Hunafa Scout Group are hosting the first ever Iftar Under the Stars event in Doncaster, this Ramadhan!!
Ramadhan is a holy month in the Islamic Calender. Muslims abstain from food and drink during daylight hours and then come together for a meal at sunset to open the fast (Iftar) and then nightly prayers (Tarawih). It is a time of spiritual reflection, personal development and community unity.
Iftar Under the Stars is a family fun day for charity. It is designed to bring together the families of Scouts, along with the wider Muslim and non-Muslim community, to experience an evening of Scouting activities followed by an evening meal and prayers under the stars.*
We would like to invite you to join us in an evening of adventure, fun and entertainment for the whole family to enjoy in the great outdoors! There is something for everyone no matter what your age! There will be exciting activities like axe throwing, archery, rifle shooting, and others. There will also be bounce activities, stalls with henna, calligraphy, glass engraving and much much more.
There will be congregational prayers (jamaat) at the event for Asr, Maghrib and Taraweeh.
LIMITED TICKETS ARE AVAILABLE! BOOK EARLY TO AVOID DISAPPOINTMENT!
Tickets on the day will be limited and may not guarantee food. it is better to purchase early to avoid disappointment.
*THERE IS NO OBLIGATION TO TAKE PART IN PRAYERS BUT WE ENCOURAGE EVERYONE TO STAY BACK AND BE PART OF THE SPIRITUAL ATMOSPHERE.
