Skits for Girl Scouts
Most skits on the MacScouter
have been provided by Boy Scouters. Now, a lot of the skits are generic
and can be performed by boys or girls. There is however a decidedly cops
and robbers, guns and knives flavor to some of the stuff.
Here you will find skits
provided by Girl Scouters and Girl Guiders, with a slant to those programs.
I would like to see this resource expand greatly, so if you don't see
your favorite skits here, and you would like to share them with everyone
else on the Web, send them to me.
Our Juniors have a favorite,
I hope I can explain it in text because it involves quite as bit of 'attitude'!!
The scene is played over
a number of times in different ways. The basic sketch is an acting set
with a director. The players are:
Set Assistant (the person who announces the 'take' and raps the 'thingy'
The Nature Girl
The ambulance (made up of around 4 girls)
The camera person
Nature girl in center
of stage, Director to the side. Set Assistant enters.
SET ASSISTANT: "Nature
Girl, scene one, take one" (exits)
NATURE GIRL: " Hi, my name is Susie, I love nature, I love everything
about it! I love the trees, I love the sky, I love the flowers, I love
that snake....Oh it bit me.." falls to ground.
MOM: (enters) "Oh no! My daughters been bit by a snake! Doctor, Doctor!!"
Doctor enters flanked
by four girls, two in front and two behind carrying flashlights. They
twirl flashlights over their head and say "Woo, Woo, Woo Woo".(like a
siren) When they reach the fallen Nature Girl, the doctor leaves the 'ambulance'
and joins mom at daughters side.
DOCTOR: "What seems to
be the problem?"
MOM :"My daughters been bit by a snake"
DOCTOR: "I'm afraid it's dead"
MOM: "Not the snake my daughter!"
DIRECTOR: "Cut, Cut, It
needs to be happier. Let's try it again"
CAMERA PERSON: "Director, Director....."
DIRECTOR: "Not now, not now.. "
They play the whole scene
again from the top. The Assistant snaps the frame and announces 'Scene
one, take two". Only this time it is played overly happy!! They belly
laugh through all the lines.Even when the mom calls for the doctor, and
the doctor says 'It's Dead" (this plays very funny).
Again the director says
'Cut' and this time it's too happy and they need to 'tone it down'.
This time the scene is played again (scene one, take three) very somber
and monotone, with no feeling or express, (this is a riot!!). The assistant
again runs up crying"Director, director..." , but the director says 'Not
At the end of this scene
the Director says "Let's try something different, let's try 'Valley Girl
style'"! This time through (scene one, take four) all the players say
'Like' in front of everything they say. As an xample:
Like, my name
is Susie, I , like, love nature.etc.
Like , oh, like, it bit me!
Like, I'm afraid it's, like, dead.
Like, what seems to be the problem?"
The really big joke is
when the amublance arrives saying, "Like woo, Like woo, Like woo!!"
At the end of this version,
when the camera person runs up saying, "Director, director..", the director
finally says "What?" and the camera person replies. "There's no film in
This is one of the best
skits I have ever seen done at campfires and our troop thanks the 'unknown
' troop we saw perform it at Whispering Oaks last year!!!
