Harrogate and Nidderdale District Scouts

The Harrogate and Nidderdale Scout District is within the Scout County of North Yorkshire.

Geographically it covers an area from Pateley Bridge in the west to Marston Moor in the east, with most groups located in the towns of Harrogate and Knaresborough.  There are 14 groups, and 8 Explorer units, including a Young Leaders’ Unit. See our Groups page for details of the Groups and their locations with the District. The District HQ and Shop can be found on Omega Street in Harrogate

The District campsite and activity centre is located near to Thornthwaite in Nidderdale and is used by Scouts and Guides from all over the country as well as other youth groups and schools.

The District runs a variety of events throughout the year for the different sections, for example, Harrogate Monopoly, Cub Camping competition, District Beaver Day and Winter Camp.  

We are also involved in community events such as providing the catering for the Stray bonfire organised by the Round Table, and of course the St George’s Day parade and Remembrance Sunday.  Other events can be found in the District Calendar.
