Outrun the Bear Camping Skit
|Required:||2 campers wearing boots.|
pair of tennis shoes.
|Preparation:||Camper #2 should have his boots very loosely laced so they can come off quickly.|
|Script:||(campers sitting center stage as if they are keeping warm around a campfire)|
Camper #1: Nice fire.
Camper #2: Yep, nice night too.
Camper #1: What was that? Did you hear something?
Camper #2: Yep, sounded like a bear to me. Off over that way. (points offstage. Then, starts untieing his boots.)
(pause until his boots are about off.)
Camper #1: Hey! There it is again. Sounds closer.
(from here on, #1 sould occasionally glance over his shoulder toward the bear and looking scared.)
Camper #2: Yep, sure does. (has boots off and starts slipping on tennis shoes.)
Camper #1: What are you doing?
Camper #2: I'm just putting on my tennis shoes.
Camper #1: Duh! WHY are you putting on your tennis shoes?
Camper #2: Because it sounds like that bear is heading right into our camp.
Camper #1: But, bears are much faster than you - those shoes won't help you outrun that bear.
Camper #2: I don't have to outrun the bear - I just have to outrun you!
(both campers run offstage away from the bear, with #2 in the lead and #1 clomping after him and screaming.)
