A group of Scouts from the Llangollen area had a day that many kids dream of - climbing trees, getting messy and lighting fires.
Over 100 Cub Scouts - girls and boys aged between eight and 10, travelled to Kibblestone International Campsite in Staffordshire.
As well as trying adventurous activities like rock climbing, caving and obstacle courses, they also got to have a go on a lathe, cooked on an open fire and even got to get up close and personal with barn owls and hawks.
Cub Scout Leader Karen Knight said: "The Cubs visibly grew in confidence as the day went on, completing tasks they didn't imagine they'd be able to do. The day was a huge success!"
If your kids need to get out more, phone the Scouts on 0845 300 1818 or visit scouts.org.uk to find out how they can join, or how you can volunteer to get outdoors yourself.
