Nights Away Badges earned this camp

We’ve been counting every night away for every member of The Fifth since they joined, Our beavers, cubs, scouts and explorers have completed a magnificent 2,869 Nights Away between them. This Summer Camp, we’ve been able to give out a big batch of badges this summer to scouts and young leaders who’ve earned them.

Seven years under canvas with The Fifth

How about some facts and figures? Camping is the best thing that we do in scouts and we recognise that with badges for the young people as they move through the sections.

2,464 nights away among our 155 under 18s

That’s nearly 7 years away.

Between the cubs scouts and explorers:

  • only 5 young people have not been on a residential experience with us (and of those 5, 3 joined this term)
  • all the explorers have been on a residential.
  • I don’t include the beavers in this bit because they have 12 who do not have nights away badges but Badger and Squirrel have a sleepover planned next month

29 beavers – 17 have a nights away badge

and a sleepover is planned in July so that will round up the rest of them

  • 11 have 2 or more
