You're bound to get some great skit ideas from the dozens I have listed here. Every time I browse through these, I get a good laugh remembering the last time some campers did each one. Some of them are real groaners like the Chainsaw skit idea but others like the Ice Fishing skit always get a good laugh. Quite a few of these skit ideas are on the gross side since they're popular with youth, but that's also what makes them funny. Two of my personal favorites that have been around forever are the Water Vending Machine and Mechanical Cowboy skits.

Skit Ideas

If you have announcement time at meals or in the evening, try to break up the monotony with a quick skit idea between announcements. It will keep the camp interested and wondering what will come next. There are some skit ideas that have many small parts, such as the Taking My Case to Court skit which can be used over and over during a single program. Get the campers involved and having a fun time in front of the audience to improve your gathering times. Most of these skit ideas will work indoors or outside, but consider that some skits really need to be seen well for the punch line to work so you might only want to do those during the day or inside.
