Nights Away Scheme

What is the Nights Away Badge?
Introducing the Girlguiding Anglia Nights Away Badge—open to all our members, from the newest Rainbow to the most mature (!) adult member, you can celebrate going away with Guiding by gaining the new Nights Away cloth badge!

To take part, complete the Nights Away Record Card every time you go away for one night or more on a recognised Guiding event. This could be a sleepover, camp, holiday, international trip etc.
Once you have reached the requisite number of Nights Away to gain one of the badges, you can apply for the badge.
This beautiful 6cm x 6cm badge can be worn proudly on your uniform (girls only) or why not display it on your camp blanket!

Sign Me Up!
1. Start collecting your ‘Nights’ Away’ by filling in the Nights Away Record Card available from your County Pack Holiday or Camping Adviser or from Anglia Region Office. You can backdate your Nights Away from 1st January 2006.
