A Camping We Will Go, Charlie Brown

Chapter 1: The Beagle Scouts' Big Camp Out

It was Friday at the Peanuts Gang's school, and Linus, Sally, Heather, Violet, Kathy, Tosha, and Min were in the classroom, trying to decide what to play. Just then, the door to the classroom opened and Snoopy, wearing a scouts uniform came into the room. "Hey look! It's Snoopy!" Kathy smiled. "What's he doing?"

Snoopy then opened the door again and let in his birdie friend Woodstock, and some of his Beagle Scouts. "He's commanding his Beagle Scouts." Linus said. "They'll be going on a big camping trip tomorrow."

"Wow!" Min, Tosha, and Kathy exclaimed in wonder as Snoopy and the Beagle Scouts looked around the classroom.

"Camping sounds really fun!" Tosha smiled. "Why don't we help Snoopy and his Beagle Scouts prepare for his camping trip?"

"That'll be fun!" Sally smiled. "We can snuggle in our sleeping bags and hold hands, right my Sweet Babboo?" Linus groaned as the girls all giggled.

"But we don't have anything we can use for a tent." Violet pointed out. It wasn't long until Min saw something that they could use for a tent.

"We can use the parachute." Min suggested.

"Okay! That'll be great." Sally smiled.

"Hey Snoopy! You wanna practice camping with us?" Heather smiled, to which Snoopy and his beagle scouts smiled back and laughed excitedly. They then made their way over to their friends and began to set up their tent.

Barney's Friends and Peanuts Gang:

A camping we will go

A camping we will go

High Ho the Derry-O

A camping we will go

After setting up coat racks, they then grabbed the parachute they want to use for their tent.

Barney's Friends and Peanuts Gang:

We'll pitch the tent right here

We'll pitch the tent right here

High Ho the Derry-O

We'll pitch the tent right here

"You can come with us, Barney!" Heather smiled as she grabbed the Barney doll sitting on the table, and Snoopy and the Beagle Scouts crawled into the tent.

"You too, Teddy." Kathy smiled as she grabbed her bear and climbed into the tent with the others.

Barney's Friends and Peanuts Gang:

We'll crawl into the tent

We'll crawl into the tent

High Ho the Derry-O

We'll crawl into the tent

We're having lots of fun

We're having lots of fun

High Ho the Derry-O

We're having lots of fun

Violet then closed their tent as the kids, beagle, and birdies began to talk among themselves. Just then, Barney came to amazing life and knocked the parachute off the coat hangers.

"BARNEY! HI!" The kids happily exclaimed.

"Hey!" Snoopy happily exclaimed as his Beagle Scouts chirped merrily at seeing the dinosaur again.

"You're too big for our tent now." Linus said.

"You're right. Let's build it back up over again." Barney smiled as Michael, Luci, Charlie Brown, Peppermint Patty, and Marcie entered the classroom.

"What happened here?!" Marcie shrieked, causing everyone to look at her in shock.

"It's probably nothing important." Peppermint Patty shrugged as she hugged Cupcake before an idea hit her. "ROAR! I'M A BIG, MEAN BEAR AND I'M GONNA EAT YOU!"

"Oh no!" the kids screamed.

"Patty, stop teasing them." Luci scolded.

"Sorry, Luci." Peppermint Patty blushed.

"Hi everyone. Hi Barney." Luci smiled.

"Hi Barney, what's going on?" Michael asked, a bit confused. "Are you playing with a parachute?"

"We were pretending to camp out, but our tent was too small." Kathy explained.

"I wish we could go camping outside for real-like the Beagle Scouts do. It's fun playing in a tent in the woods." Tosha added.

"The Beagle Scouts?" Michael asked. "Who are they?"

"This is troop leader Snoopy and his troop: Woodstock, Oliver, Conrad, Fred, Bill, Wilson, Raymond, Roy and Harriet." Barney introduced. "And if we all use our imagination; we can all go camping in the woods with the Beagle Scouts RIGHT NOW!" Barney explained, exciting everyone.

"We can all be honorary Beagle Scouts!" Marcie squealed, grabbing her backpack.

"This is gonna be exciting!" Tosha smiled.

"I can't wait!" Heather cheered.

"Okay, everybody, cover and close your eyes, wish really hard and say the magic words with me." Barney smiled.

"Shimbaree, Shimbarah… Shimbaree, Shimbarah!" everyone exclaimed as they were transported to a forest at night.

"Is it just me or is there a draft in here?" shivered Linus, wrapping himself in his blanket.

"At least I brought Fluffy. He'll keep me warm." Sally smiled, hugging her teddy bear.

"He's cute." Kathy smiled.

"I LOVE the outdoors." Charlie Brown smiled.

"LOOK! There's a tent big enough for ALL of us." Michael explained.

"This campsite SURE is neat." Min smiled.

"Barney, this is EVEN BETTER than what the two of us wished for." Tosha smiled.

"I love it and I can tell Teddy loves it too!" Kathy smiled. "Heather, Peppermint Patty-did you two bring your teddy bears too?"

"I brought Velvet AND Caramel!" Heather smiled. "In case someone else wants a teddy bear to hug."

"And I brought-" Peppermint Patty began.

"Cupcake?" asked Kathy, Sally, Heather and Marcie in unison.

"How did you girls know?" Peppermint Patty asked in shock.

"Just a hunch." Marcie shrugged.

"Anyways, we should get ready for the BEST CAMP OUT EVER!" Peppermint Patty cheered.

"I LOVE camping too." Marcie smiled.

"Well then…" Luci smiled.

Luci:

"I think I'm gonna look around a little bit." Michael said.

"Me too." Marcie smiled.

"Count me in!" Linus exclaimed. "Luckily, Lucy with a 'Y' and Schroeder aren't here."

"Don't jinx it either." Tosha giggled.

"Yeah. Don't." Marcie smiled.

"I'll come, my Sweet Babboo." Sally flirted.

"And stay right here, close to the campsite." Barney suggested.

"We will." Linus explained.

"Because we DON'T want anyone getting lost. Right, Barney?" Heather asked.

"That's right, Heather." Barney said.

"You know what I like best about camping?" Luci asked.

"What?" Charlie Brown asked.

"You get to see and hear so many different kinds of birds and animals." Luci answered.

"That's right, Luci." Barney smiled. "They live in the woods and it's-"

"HEY EVERYBODY!" Sally cried out. "DUCK!" everyone then ducked as Michael, Marcie, Linus and Sally returned.

"Not that kind of 'duck'." Linus giggled.

"We mean this kind." Marcie explained, pulling out a stuffed duck. Everyone blushed at the mistake.

"Duck, duck-it's an easy mix up." Charlie Brown chuckled anxiously.

"I knew it the whole time." Peppermint Patty giggled.

"Well, come look at this!" Michael suggested as he led them all into the woods.

"Okay. Let's go." Barney chuckled. He led them towards a bunch of ducklings.

"Look. Sally found these baby ducklings that came from the pond." Linus said.

Barney, Barney's friends and Peanuts Gang:

Be kind to your web-footed friends.

For a duckling is somebody's mother.

They live in the field and the swamp

where the weather is always damp.

You may think that this is the end.

Well, it is!
