George Washington and the Cherry Tree   George Washington and the Cherry Tree Skit   Scout Skit

4 scouts
Scene: 3 scouts sitting around a campfire with one scout acting as the adult leader.

Leader: We need to reflect on our day at camp. For the most part, I think it was a great day. What do you think?
Scouts: yeah! great! really good!
Leader: But, there was one instance that we need to take care of. I'm sure you know what it was. I only want to ask once - who rolled the tent over that cliff over there?
Scouts: Not me! I didn't! It wasn't me! Don't look at me!

Leader: OK, let me tell you a little story about our first president, George Washington. George's dad had a cherry tree that produced lots of cherries every year. One day, when George's dad came home, his cherry tree had been chopped down.
Scouts: Huh! Hmmm! Uhuh!

Leader: Yep, and when George's dad asked him 'Son, did you chop down my tree?', George, being honest and brave, replied 'Yes sir, I did it.' Well, George's dad said 'Since you told me the truth, we'll pick all the cherries and make a big cherry pie for you.'
Scouts: Wow! Really! Huh!

Leader: Now, one last time - Who pushed the tent over the cliff?
Scout #1: Not me!
Scout #2: I didn't!
Scout #3: (sheepishly replies) It was me.

Leader: (mad and grabs the scout by the arm to take him away.) Come on, then! You're going home!
Scout #3: But George Washington got a cherry pie for telling the truth!
Leader: George Washington's father wasn't in the cherry tree when George Washington cut it down!
