How to be a Scout by Bear Grylls (HARD COVER)

Exclusive to the Scout Shop - FREE 'Do Your Best' Badge with every book!   

Finally an update to the original 'SCOUTING FOR BOYS' by Lord Baden Powell. In beautifully bound hardback format. A perfect Christmas gift for every Scout and Leader.

HOW TO BE A SCOUT - DO YOUR BEST - by Bear Grylls is a complete rethink of this original text by BP, all original content but drawing on the principles that BP himself applied over 100 years ago when he came up with the idea of training youth for life.

This book is for anyone who is a Scout, was a Scout or wants to be a Scout. It's written in todays language by Bear Grylls, Chief Scout of the World who is still very active in Scouting in the UK.

DO YOUR BEST: HOW TO BE A SCOUT is stuffed like a rucksack with stories, inspiration, tips and tricks from the movement that practically invented the spirit of adventure and outdoor survival. It’s the ultimate handbook for every Scout of every age. You’ll learn all the skills Scouts use to do their best in everything they do. Use them to live life to the full and make a real difference in the world.

Find out how to pitch a tent, lead a team, keep fit, tie knots, identify trees, stars and birds. You’ll also learn how you can protect the planet and make a difference in your community – and so much more. Along the way, you’ll pick up survival skills like building a shelter in the snow, how to survive an avalanche and how to light a fire without a match. Life's an adventure. Just remember: do your best and never give up.
