Thank you for visiting the Euro Jamboree 2020 Application page.
The entries are now closed.
The TTT Expedition Weekend is back again in 2019 and in a change for this year ALL teams are eligible to win the trophies! Are you ready for a challenge?
For the younger Scouts there is Tohunga - this will give you an introduction to expeditions without having to carry all your overnight kit.
Teko-Teko is a 2-day expedition for older scouts – this time you get to plan your route, so you choose the distance you will walk.
For the Explorer Scouts there is a Tahwiri, another 2-day expedition but a bit more challenging than Teko-Teko and again you get to plan your own route.
Would like to take part or find more information? More information and the link to the booking form can be found HERE on the County Website
N.B. If you would like to enter a team but your troop or unit doesn’t have enough ‘Expedition Kit’, please contact the Event Manager, as the Earth Team have a small amount of equipment that may be available.
Since 2014 The Scout Association has adopted an ambitious strategy enabling the Movement to be shaped by young people working in partnership with adult volunteers. As part of that plan, YouShape month was launched to encourage young people to make more decisions, shape their own programmes and take on leadership roles. This year the HQ team also want to hear the views of Youth Commissioners, Section Leaders and young people on embedding the Youth Shaped theme into all Scouting activities.
Often leaders shy away from involving young people, saying that they aren’t capable of taking decisions, their suggestions are impractical or it creates more work for the already overworked leadership team, especially if their numbers are low. With careful planning, it’s not difficult to involve young people regularly in the active management of sections. For example, after some instruction:-
Scouts can plan their own route for a hike,
Cubs can show what activities they like best by drawing pizza slices of different sizes or, by voting in a Log Chew,
Beavers can help decide what games to play each week.
Taking this to a higher level, with time and support, Explorers can organise whole meetings and events for themselves, enrol as Young Leaders to influence the younger sections and become the voice of young people on committees at Group, District, County and National level.
There is a huge range of easy to run and ready-made programme ideas, activity inspirations and further information on the Scout Association website at Youth Shape. Details of how you can get involved in this year’s consultation can also be found at You Shape Award.
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 ten 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!
