Adventurous activity permit scheme

The adventurous activity permit scheme is an internal assessment scheme designed to ensure that all those leading adventurous activities for young people within Scouting have the skills, experience and personal suitability to do so. Full details are available here on how the scheme works, as well as support for you through the scheme, whether you are a leader applying for a permit, an assessor assessing an applicant, or a commissioner granting someone a permit.

Adventurous activities are:-

  • Archery

  • Caving

  • Climbing and abseiling except

    • Bouldering and climbs using auto belay systems (systems that lower a climber to the ground without any human intervention)

  • Hill Walking (Terrain one and two)

  • Off Road Cycling (Terrain one and two)

  • Hovercrafting

  • Snowsports (except​​ artficial and nursery slopes)

  • All water activities, except swimming, on class B1, B2, B3 or A waters 

  • All motorised water activities and SCUBA activities on class C waters

As a County we are trying to offer training in relation to the above permits.  Details of any courses we are running can be found below.
