One of the main reasons that young people join Scouting is to go camping, go on sleepovers and generally spends Nights Away. This page contains links to an online form to notify your District Commissioner or their appointee that you are holding a Nights Away activity and a page explaining the Permit Scheme, together with details of campsites and other venues in Clwyd and further affield.
