Escape is an event organised by York Ebor District, North Yorkshire and is open to all UK Explorer Scouts (14-17yrs) as 'Escapers' and Network members and Leaders (18yrs+) as 'Catchers'. The Escapers are given 24 hours to get between set checkpoints across the Yorkshire countryside while evading Catcher teams. Escape is held annually on the third weekend in October.
Bookings are now open! Last year we had to close bookings early as we were fully booked, so book now to avoid disappointment.
When is it?
Saturday 19th to Sunday 20th October 2019. Escape begins at 10:00am, with sign-ins and kit checks commencing at 08:30am.
Where is it?
This year we will be returning to Howardian Hills. Specific locations are kept secret until one month before Escape starts, to make sure the route is brand new to all Escape teams. The end location is only announced on the event.
Are you up to the challenge? Can you...
a) Walk 25-35km? (This same distance as a DofE Bronze expedition)
b) Be on your feet competing for 24 hours?
c) Competently navigate yourself across Yorkshire's countryside?
d) Cope in all weathers, with the appropriate equipment to help you?
e) Arrive at our Yorkshire start point for 08:30am on a Saturday morning?
We've had nearly 350 participants from across England. We expect lots of cunning, lots of resourcefulness and lots of ingenuity! So far, our teams have not disappointed!
The Escape team who are caught the fewest times, and hold the least amount of penalty points win!
In North Yorkshire Scouts we are fortunate enough to have a lot of adult leaders who are qualified to instruct our Beaver Scouts, Cub Scouts, Scouts and Explorer Scouts in various outdoor activities pertaining to their age ranges.
To allow our young people to enjoy the myriad of exciting Scouting activities costs us a lot of money - joining our 200 Club is one of the ways that YOU can help us to achieve our goals
If you join our 200 Club - HALF the money you pay quarterly goes in PRIZES and the other HALF goes towards our County Scout Funds - this is a way of raising money for North Yorkshire Scouts AND allows YOU the the possible thrill of winning one of the prizes in our Monthly Draw - EVERY MONTH!
We DO need your help - numbers of members participating are reducing and, therefore, so is the money we can add to our County Scout Funds. PLEASE join and help if you can!
If you are interested in finding out more about the Draw (or joining it) please contact David, our County Secretary, at the County Office NOW!
