Bear, who became the youngest person to be named Chief Scout at the age of 34 in 2009, visited 11 camps across the Scotland at the weekend.
Bear said: “I've been excited to come up to Scotland and visit all the scouts here. There's an incredible, thriving growing scouting community up in Scotland.
“You come to a camp like this and you're reminded of everything that I love about scouting; thousands of young people motivated, smiling, building their dreams, building adventures, building expeditions, building camps, learning incredible outdoor and life skills, and a sense of pride you can't put a price on. I'm very proud.”
Bear spoke to the scouts about his daring adventures as well as taking part in a range of activities, including cooking, team challenges and drumming workshops.
