The youngsters transformed the Tom Thumb Campsite, near Spilsby, into Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry as they held a fun weekend of outdoor pursuits themed around Harry Potter.

Scouts were sorted into the four houses to compete against each other in a range of tasks as they worked towards their creative challenge badges.

Activities included: following clues and answering riddles to avoid the evil Lord Voldemort on a six-mile hike, using pyrography to decorate leather woggles, and making Golden Snitches to hide in the ‘Forbidden Forest’.

The weekend was rounded off with a grand feast.
