AS part of celebrations to mark the centenary of scouting, 1st March Scouts held a bank holiday camp at Peck's Drove Scout Campsite, Spalding.
A total of 37 scouts and 13 cubs braved the poor weather to take part in a full programme of activities.
These included building a 12-feet-high monkey bridge to cross a 20-feet wide ditch, a climbing frame and a scout transporter capable of lifting a scout from one side of a ditch to another.
They also enjoyed racing around an obstacle course which was built by the scouts, playing games including lacrosse, building a large catapult, playing a quiz and making centenary friendship bracelets.
Gavin Philpott, March 1st assistant scout leader, said: "The cubs and scouts performed admirably, using their training to survive and thrive in the very best traditions of what Lord Baden-Powell started a century ago.
