Scouting in three words


Given half the chance we know you’d wax lyrical about Scouting – but what if words were precious and you could only choose three...what would they be?

We asked our Chief Scout Bear Grylls and this is what he said.

And we’d like you to tell us exactly what Scouting means to you, in a trio of words.

Here’s how:

  • Record a video – no longer than 10 seconds – with your three words. Be innovative: you could hold up signs, act out your words or get your Scout Group to shout them out. For video-making top tips click here.
  • We realise this is a request that depends on you have some techie kit but we don’t mind how you create a video just so long as it’s short, clear (visually and sound-wise) and heartfelt. It could be done on your phone, via your laptop camera or handheld camera. Upload it to Facebook, Vine, Vimeo, Viddy, YouTube: any channel you like – and share it with us on Twitter using the hashtag #Scoutingin3 or post it on our Facebook wall.
  • The only other thing we want you to do is tell other UK Scouting members to get involved!

Then, we’ll collate them all – with Bear’s - and show you the fruits of your labour.

We can’t wait to hear (and see) what you’ve got to say!
