Nights Away Staged Activity Badge activities

World weekend

Enjoy a global-themed night away.

No trace nights away

When you leave your place, leave no trace. Plan and run a spy or ninja-themed night away.

Camping

Camping is a great choice for nights away. Sleeping in a tent gives you the chance to connect with nature and build your independence.

Find out how one Scout Group got on when they visited GO Outdoors for a kit night....

St. Cuthbert’s Scouts (Hull) visited the Hull one Spring. At the time, we were not sure what to expect when GO Outdoors contacted us asking if we wanted to attend a kit night. 

As an outdoorsy group, our Cubs are quite knowledgeable about what to take to camp and hikes. However, we were pleasantly surprised with the way the friendly staff made the entire time fun and educational. 

The Cubs learned how to select the best rucksack to suit themselves and ensure how the rucksack was fitted correctly, how to select the correct walking boots and why they should have the right type of socks. They also went over what equipment to pack for a Hike Away. Ben from the store kept the Cubs entertained and answered any questions the Cubs could come up with. 

We finished the night with a look around the store; I could only imagine the size of the lists of stuff the Cubs asked their parents for! 

I would highly recommend contacting GO Outdoors for a kit talk as it’s a great evening.
