This may be the ULTIMATE SKIT to get the STAFF at summer camp!
The Skit is the FIREBUILDING Skit
When we entered the campfire theater the first four scouts walked in with
large cans filled only with torn up news paper. The Staff immediately
noticed and gave us their attention. One or two came over to see what was
up. We let them examine the cans and they found only paper.
As everyone was seated, the leaders delivered additional cans, these had
water baloons coverd with paper. I even threw some paper in the air as we
delivered the cans.
During the other skits, I sat down with staff carrying a dummy can and left
Now for the skit:
Have four volunteers stand across from each other with arms on shoulders
making a square.
The Next four volunteers bend over with their rears pushed out and their arms
around the waist of the four who are standing.
The Next four get behind the knees of the four bent over, on all fours.
The announcer contiues to talk about fire lays and the importance of building
a great fire lay. Ham this up and joke about the funny logs the scouts have
brought for the fire lay.
With everything in place, the announcer reminds all of fire safety and that
you must always put out the fire when you are finished. ( at this point the
senior staff member was heard assuring the others, no fear, its only paper)
The Staff was then properly "put out"!
It was a great sales job, and worked so well. Best skit and Best con at
If you have a new Best of the Best Skit, share it with me.
