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 NY Scouts AND allows YOU the the possible thrill of winning one of the many prizes in our Monthly Draw - EVERY MONTH!
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!
As a team, participants plan and walk their own route taking in a number of checkpoints, some of which are compulsory. For this reason, the distance walked depends on route planning. Successful completion of the event satisfies the expedition elements of both the Scout and DofE training schemes.
Teams must be completely self-contained, carrying all equipment and food for the weekend. Although no minimum age is specified, in the opinion of the leader ALL Scouts entered must be physically and mentally capable of completing the event.
Teko Tahwiri Tohunga (or TTT for short) is open to teams of between 4 - 7 Scouts or Explorers, who compete against one another in a 2-day expedition, testing their route planning and campsite skills!
For Leaders, this is an easy weekend to help your Scouts / Explorers achieve Activity, Staged, and Challenge Badges, giving Scouts the opportunity to get even closer to their Chief Scouts Gold Award, and Explorers to their Chief Scouts Platinum and DofE Awards!

NORTH HAMBLETON will be formed when 'Leven' and 'Northallerton & District' merge in April 2020. We are now seeking applications for the first DC of the new District. The DC is a uniformed, management role and we need someone who can provide leadership, motivation and guidance to other adult volunteers.
You don't need any prior experience of Scouting to apply and we welcome applications from people of any age. The role can be undertaken individually or as a job-share as part of a District Commissioner team. Before the District stands up in April, the new DC will work with the County Merger Group in developing plans for North Hambleton and its new District Team.
The Vacancy Pack provides invaluable advice on the role, including a link to the application. To see the Vacancy Pack and Application Form just click HERE
