Community-minded youngsters gathered together for the Maidenhead District Beaver Scouts' annual Beaveree at Altwood School.
Beaver scouts from 13 colonies across the town have been raising money for Thames Valley Adventure Playground (TVAP), taking part in challenges such as sponsored silences to encourage people to donate their cash.
Together, they raised £1,200 for the charity.
On Saturday, 150 of them met up at the school in Altwood Road for a day of fun centred around a circus theme.
The aspiring performers crafted their own juggling balls, dressed up as clowns and tried their hands at circus tricks with diablos and hoops. They also tested out their baking skills by making their own clown shaped biscuits.
A representative from the adventure playground on the Bath Road in Taplow then spoke to the beavers about the charity and thanked them for their dedication.
Assistant district commissioner Graham Parkins said the annual event is always a highlight.
"It's a nice sunny day so we've been outside for a change."
