Youngsters from the borough were among 90 Melton District Cub Scouts who enjoyed a fun-packed weekend of adventurous activities.
The popular event at Holwell Campsite saw the Cubs try their hands at different events including axe and knife, shooting, backwoods cooking, crafts, water rockets, inflatable and a street fair of games.
Mayor of Melton Jeanne Douglas stopped by on the Saturday to show her support for the event and joined in with some of the activities including lighting, boiling a Kelly Kettle and making a beaded woggle.
She said: “I really enjoyed it. It was fantastic to go along to see what goes on. As ordinary public folk we don’t often get to find out about what Cubs do on their weekend camps.”
A competition was also held to design a special badge. The winner was Samuel Culy of the 5th Melton Mowbray Division.
Melton District Cub Scouts would like to thank all the volunteers and parents who gave up their time to run activities.
