First boy searches the ground around the campfire. This can also be near a "lamppost" (One scout stands onstage holding the flashlight overhead pointing to the ground - he is a lamppost and just stands there the whole time.)
Second boy: "What are you looking for, maybe I can help you find it.
First boy: "I dropped my neckerchief slide."
Second boy: "OK, I'll help you look for it"
Repeat for as many boys as you need
Second boy: "Where were you standing when you dropped it."
First boy: "Over there." (He points into the darkness.)
Second boy: "Then why aren't you looking over there."
First boy: "Are you kidding? It's too dark over there. You can't see a thing."
