"You awaken to an exciting new day with your best friends. You look out through the open tent door and see a smiling sun in a blue sky..."
Thus begins one of the strangest chapters in a BSA Handbook to ever exist. The 1979 edition of the Boy Scout Handbook decided to open their chapter on summer camp with a multi-page description of a then-typical day, written in the second person.
Most people would read it, laugh, and move on. Summer camp staff look at it and think, "this would make a fantastic skit..."
Skits are what makes a campfire memorable, far more than songs or simple jokes. Legendary skits make the rounds for years or even decades, only falling out of style when they aren't passed along.
Collected here are some of the more enduring skits throughout the years. Take a look and see if you can avoid the thousand-and-first rendition of "Invisible Bench" (which has now moved so far along that I have seen "Visible Bench" as a skit.)
Sometimes you need something right out of left field.
Do Not Attempt This At Home
A run-on is exactly what it sounds like: a person runs on, says or does something, and runs off.
