More than 200 youngsters enjoyed a weekend of fun in Exmouth at a district scout camp.
The Clifftop Capers event at the Bristol Schools campsite near Orcombe Point was open to all Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers within Exmouth, Woodbury, Lympstone and Budleigh.
More than 90 parent and leader volunteers were on hand to run the various activities for the 214 youngsters, aged six to 18, who attended, including biplane construction, canoeing, bungee running and wakeboarding.
There was also a tug-of-war competition, along with sports including football, tag rugby, ultimate Frisbee and welly-wanging.
Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service also attended and got the youngsters to try out some firefighting skills.
The event was opened by Exmouth Town Crier Roger Bourgein, and also attended by Exmouth mayor Brian Cole and Budleigh Salterton mayor Alan Dent.
Scout groups are always looking for new adult volunteers, and anyone interested is asked to email firstname.lastname@example.org.
