Scoutmaster in the Wild Skit
This Skit is meant for Boy Scouts.
Decide for yourself if it is appropriate for your younger scouts or not.
at least two people, more if you've got 'em
(sound effects people, or person, go off into the trees before the skit starts, just out of the campfire light)
Storyteller: Hasn't this been a great day! Out here in the wild, it's so much nicer than in the city. It's usually quieter, but if you listen there are lots of sounds around us.
You might hear some BIRDS. (say it loud enough for the person hidden in the woods to hear)
Sound Effects: make loud bird chirpings, crows cawing, owls hooting, ... for a few seconds.
Storyteller: Or, maybe some FROGS.
Sound Effects: make loud ribbitting noises.
Storyteller: If you're lucky, even some LARGER ANIMALS might wander by.
Sound Effects: make loud growling, roaring, rustling branches.
Storyteller: But, when I'M out camping in the wilds, there's no sound that makes me feel more safe, secure, and knowing I'm with the right gang, than the sound of our SCOUTMASTER in the woods.
Sound Effects: Rustle branches, stomp around, then yell "Hey, where are you guys?!?" or "Where's the latrine?" or "Where's my buddy?" or something particularly significant for your troop.
