Ebor District in North Yorkshire is made up of thirteen Scout Groups spanning from Poppleton in the west, past Bishopthorpe in the south and on to Dunnington in the east.

There has been Scouting in the district since 1909. We currently provide fun, adventure and life skills for over 1,400 young people in 6 Squirrel Dreys, 21 Beaver Colonies, 20 Cub Packs, 20 Scout Troops, and 7 Explorer Units. We are entirely run by volunteers and charitable funding.
