Applications are now open for one young person to join the County Contingent and for an Assistant Unit Leader.
This is a further opportunity of a lifetime for one young member and a leader, who will join the North Yorkshire Scouts Contingent and represent the UK in Poland in 2021. The application deadline is midday on Friday 19 June. You can find all the information you need before applying and the online application form HERE on the International Opportunities page.
Ripon & District has a proud Scouting history and as one of the largest in the County it has some very successful Groups and 3 Explorer Scout Units, both large and small, supported by a large & dedicated Active Support Unit.
Our County Commissioner says: "I am sure that every one in the District (and in the County) will all give John full support as he begins this new chapter in his Scouting career. In doing so, I am confident that he will help everyone to offer ever more opportunities for adventure and skills for life to our young members at this most challenging of times and when face-to-face Scouting eventually resumes".
The competition is open to everyone involved in Scouting and Guiding in the County of North Yorkshire (from Beavers and Rainbows through to adults).
Using recyclable or junk materials only, create a model. You can do anything so use your imagination to come up with your most creative design and name it! (You may use sticky tape, string or glue to assemble and craft materials/paints etc to decorate).
You will need to take two photographs: one of the materials you are going to use and one of your finished model with a quirky name for it. Submit these for judging by the end of June. The most creative model from each section wins.
All entries must be submitted with the name of the entrant, Section (Beaver, Brownie etc), Scout or Guide Group, District plus Guide County details, an email or postal contact and confirmation that the entry is all the entrant’s own work. The entries will be judged in the appropriate section, all judging will be anonymous, and the decisions of the judges will be final.

Dear Team North Yorkshire,
Here we are and 10 weeks have now passed; I hope that you and your families are keeping well. You are all still doing a fantastic job. Many AGMs are now in the planning or are due to take place, so well done for that. Your programmes, as always, amaze me but as we go forward, we thought it would be good to share ideas across the County. So, next week we will be setting up a shared Google drive for you to share all your great ideas, templates etc so that we can expand the pool of online ideas. Look out next week for the link.
Safety and Safeguarding. Please can I ask those that need to complete their online safety and safeguarding do this as soon as possible. There is a new online safeguarding course that avoids the need to use flash player. The links below take you directly to this mandatory training, including the new online safeguarding course.
Sunrise to Sunset Activity Day
Sunday 21st June when we celebrate the longest day.
A daylong programme of events that our young people, adults and families can tune in to. A kind of virtual activity day. Look out for the programme release next week. Links to book a place will be available, but please flag up the event with your young people.
I am pleased to reveal our badge for the event that from next week can be ordered at a cost of £1 per badge - It was designed by Max from Elvington Beavers (York Ebor District) and can be worn on the uniform left sleeve cuff for the next 12 months. He has tried to keep it fairly simple so that it can be easily printed as a badge. He has added the farming element partly because he lives next to a farm and knows that farmers work from dawn to dusk and North Yorkshire is a big farming community. Max also wanted to show the different colours of the sun when it rises and sets.
