To achieve the Nights Away Staged Activity Badge you need to:
Complete a designated number* of nights away on a recognised Scout activity, sleeping in either tents, bivouacs, hostels, on boats or other centres. Those taking part should be suitably equipped for the activity and weather conditions.
*Nights Away Staged Activity Badges can be awarded after completing 1 night away or 2, 3, 4, 5, 10, 15, 20, 35, 50, 75, 100, 125, 150, 175 and 200 nights away thereafter.
Young people of any section may, with the agreement of their leader, also include nights away spent on educational trips, Duke of Edinburgh's Award expeditions and other similar excursions.
