The Scout Association's website provides information, advice and
guidance on all you need to know on hill walking, including the
rules, factsheets, how to run the activity and list of relevant
national governing bodies
Adventurous activities are operated within the framework of The
Scout Association's national Policy, Organisation and Rules (POR).
A permit scheme for adventurous activities is designed to show that
all those leading these for young people in Scouting have the
skills, experience and personal suitability to do so.
Everyone who leads an adventurous activity (such as hiking/hill
walking or mountaineering) within Scouting is required to hold a
permit for that activity. POR sets out those classed as
'adventurous' for this purpose. On these pages you can find an
overview of the permit scheme, links to the relevant rules and
factsheets, information about how to handle accidents and
emergencies, Ten Tors support and links to downloadable resources
and external sites.
