Six or seven scouts each bring in a wrapped present. The "presents" can be anything (paper clips, envelopes, a pencil, a block of wood); The Scoutmaster (camp director) being honored stands in front of the group. Scout 1 comes up with his present (paper clips, for example) and gives it to the SM. SM opens the package. "Oh gee, paper clips! How nice!" Scout 1: "Oh it was nothing, Mr. Jones. My dad works in a paper clip factory." Scout 2 comes up with his present (envelopes, for example) and gives it to the SM. SM opens the package. "Oh boy, envelopes. Thanks, Tommy." Scout 2: "No problem, Mr. Jones. The old man works in a stationery store." And so on to the last one -- Last scout comes up with a box, dripping water out of the bottom, and says, "I'm sorry, Mr. Jones, but my dad works in a pet store..."
