Ghost Stories



Short Stories

Scary ghost stories around a campfire are the traditional ending to a day at camp. Whether at a scout's first Webelos camp or a seasoned Boy Scout's high adventure, short stories told to the rest of the gang give a boy a chance to be the leader for a few minutes. Choosing an appropriate story can be a challenge - especially those about a scary ghost or horror. Remember that if somene is too scared to sleep, it will effect everyone the next day. It might be better to keep the stories funny or at least end with a couple of light-hearted tales.
Good luck finding a short story here to make your campfires and meetings great. We hope you enjoy our favorites - as humorous or scary as they may be.

The telling of a humorous short story can help a group of scouts relax before bed. A good way to bond a scout patrol is to ask the patrol members to come up with a couple of short stories for the next campout. They may even have one or two patrol favorites which they can tell to new scouts on their first campouts with the troop. Most of the stories here are not about ghosts or horrors so you should be able to find a few for scouts of any age.

I enjoy this website, I have used many of the ideas on here to help with programme ideas for my own troop in Perth, Western Australia. Great Site.

I remember when I was a boyscout and we would tell stories like these. No matter which camp you go to you would tell stories like this. I know because I went to 10. Some as a scout, others as a troop leader. Thank you for reminding me of my childhood.
