Harrogate and Nidderdale District Scouts is a district 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 9 Explorer units, including a Young Leaders’ Unit.

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.

The District runs a variety of events throughout the year for the different sections, for example, the Teko Teko and Tohunga expedition event, Monopoly, Cub Camping competition and District Beaver Day.  It is also involved in community events such as providing the catering for the Stray bonfire organised by the Round Table, taking part in the Bilton Gala, and of course the St George’s Day parade and Remembrance Sunday.  Other events can be found in the District Calendar.
