A total of 72 members of Fuengirola Scouts, Cubs, Beavers and Brownies Group spent a weekend camping in the Sierra de las Nieves learning survival skills recently.
After travelling to the hills in a number of cars and coaches, the Cubs and Scouts took the opportunity to teach first-timers to pitch the tents, while Beavers and Brownies got busy setting out bedding and unloading craft and food items.
The theme of the camp was Blue Mountains, and the children were asked to imagine they were on a survival camp with Bear Grylls.
After setting up camp, the youngsters carried out a map and instruction following activity before supper and bed.
The next morning saw a bright and early start with activities for the youngsters including climbing, cooking, fire-lighting, first aid and crafts, and sports in the afternoon.
After tidying up and before departing, a ceremony was held for presentations and prizes for the children that had made good progress.
One child moved up from Beavers and made his Cub Promise and three Cubs moved up to Scouts and made their Scout Promises.
