Ignite Activity Weekend

Ignite! Our jam-packed activity weekend for Scouts and Explorers!

North Yorkshire Scouts is delighted to open bookings for Ignite, a jam-packed activity weekend for Scouts and Explorers set deep within Dalby Forest, taking place on 16 - 18 September 2022.

North Yorkshire’s let-your-hair-down activity weekend will be a queue-and-do experience, with an open programme from start to finish. Landing in September, Ignite will kick off the Scouting calendar and give our young people something to look forward to over the summer holidays. 

Planned with the section leader in mind, Ignite will be oven-ready, meaning all activities, catering, and entertainment will be included as part of the camp cost. Section volunteers will just need to bring their Troop or Unit and a pile of sleeping tents! 

We’re now inviting you to register your Troop or Unit with your estimated numbers. You will then need to launch the event to your young people on OSM, with a suggested confirmation and payment deadline of 30 April. You will then have until 15 May to let us know your final numbers. The full balance will be due by 31 May. 

A deposit of £55 is due within 14 days of your booking being received. Our friendly admin team will send you an invoice providing you with payment details and your unique booking reference. 

The timeline:
  • October 2021 - Register interest
  • 28 February 2022 - Bookings open
  • 30 April 2022 - Bookings close
  • 15 May - Participant numbers due
  • 31 May 2022 - Final balance due
  • 16 September 2022 - Ignite!!! 
The programme:
Our incredible activities team are working hard to plan and deliver some incredible activities for Scouts and Explorers throughout the weekend, including mountain biking, laser-tag, climbing, archery, air rifles, and much more. In addition to the daytime line up, our team is building an exciting evening programme too, with things like discos and cinemas.  
Everything (such as camping fees, activities and catering) is all included within the camp costs.
  • Scouts / Explorers: £55
  • Non-participating young people (i.e. leader's children): £15
  • Leadership team (and any other adult volunteers): £15
Please note: We know that some Scouts Groups don't charge their leaders for camps and events, but some do. For those that don't, we recommend dividing the cost of the leader's fee across your young people - we want you to make this decision locally, instead of us increasing the event fee. You may also wish to add a charge to your young people to cover your transportation costs.
