Bear Grylls is famous for his survival skills and sense of Adventure and now he is also famous for being the youngest Chief Scout. Scouting is a growing organisation and Grylls will head up 400,000 young people and 100,000 adult volunteers throughout the UK and over 600 young people and adults in Keighley. 

When asked why he chose to volunteer for the UK’s largest mixed youth movement, Grylls said: ‘In short, because I love adventure and I love hanging out with good friends. For me this is what Scouting is about.’ When asked by young people how they can learn his skills Grylls says he learnt his basic skills when he as a Scout. 

Grylls goes on to say that there are 30,000 young people in the UK currently on waiting lists to join the Scout movement and there is a huge demand for new adult volunteers. All new volunteers will receive free comprehensive training and have the opportunity to make a huge difference to their local community.
