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 of the adventurous activity permit scheme can be found in the factsheets below. This includes factsheets for specific roles such as commissioner and applicant. Activity-specific factsheets and assessment checklists can be found in the A-Z of Activities.
This application form can be used to apply for a permit for any activity, although there is no requirement to use it if you have other means of making contact with an assessor or booking onto an assessment course. It can be filled in online to be sent as an email attachment to speed up the process if required, or printed off and sent as a hard copy. Details of the different types of permit it is possible to apply for can be found in the factsheet FS120100 Adventurous Activity Permit Scheme.
When making an application it is always useful to include all relevant logged experience. To help with this you can use the blank log books below, or any other versions you may have. Again it is possible to fill these in online and send as email attachments, or print off as hard copies.

If you are running an assessment course then please feel free to send us details of your permit assessment course to have it added online.
The manager of the activity permit scheme (MAPS) in each county (or area or region (Scotland)) is a way of identifying who is responsible for the management of the activity permit scheme locally. This will most often fall under the remit of the ACC activities, but may come under a different role depending on local structures.
