Storyteller: It was a beautiful weekend, and Caillou was very excited because he was going camping.

Caillou: Mommy, I need to go. Now.

Mom: Are you sure you can't wait?

(Mom stops the car at a rest area, and she and Caillou get out of the car)

Rosie: Caillou? (crying)

Dad: Wha-What's the matter, Rosie?

Rosie: Mommy gone!

Dad: You're right, and so is Caillou.

(Dad and Rosie get out of the car)

Dad: There you are.

Rosie: Yay!

Dad: Where's Caillou?

(Rosie giggles)

Mom: He needed to make a pit stop.

Rosie: Caillou!

Caillou: I'm finished.

Mom: Come on. We'd better get going.

Dad: Yeah, let's get this show on the road. On second thought…

Mom: What's the matter, honey?

Dad: I-I-I think I'd better go, too.

(Caillou, Mom, and Rosie laugh)

Caillou: (pointing at a sign with a moose on it) What's that?

Mom: It's a moose-crossing sign. There are a lot of moose in the forest, and that tells drivers to watch for them.

Caillou: A moose?! Wow! Can I see one?

Rosie: Rosie, too!

Mom: You shouldn't get your hopes up too high, Caillou.

Caillou: Why?

Dad: Because moose are very shy.

Storyteller: Caillou thought it was strange that such a big animal could be shy.

(The family reaches the campsite)

Pierre: Hi, folks! Welcome to Camp Brome! My name's Pierre! What's yours?

Caillou: Caillou.

Pierre: You're going to have lots of adventures here, Caillou. You can play games, and go swimming, and even climb a mountain! What would you like to do first?

Caillou: I want to see a moose.

Pierre: I'm afraid it's not very likely. Moose stay away from people most of the time. I don't think we've ever seen one in the camp before.

(Mom and Dad are trying to put the trailer up)

Pierre: What do you say we give 'em a hand with that?

(Caillou and Pierre help Dad and Mom with the trailer)

Rosie: (giggles)

Caillou: (giggles)

Pierre: Nice work, Caillou.

(Scene cuts to a lake, where Mom is swimming)

Mom: Are you coming in, Caillou?

Caillou: Wait for me, Mommy! (He sees little fish swimming in the water and gets scared)

Mom: What's the matter, sweetie? Come on, the water's great.

Caillou: But something's swimming in the water.

Mom: Those are little fish, Caillou. Don't worry. They're more afraid of you than you are of them.

Storyteller: Caillou wasn't so sure that he wanted to swim anymore.

Caillou: It's too deep.

Mom: It isn't deep at all.

Caillou: It's cold.

Mom: Don't you want to splash me?

(Caillou gets in the water, and he and Mom have a splash fight)

Storyteller: Once Caillou got into the water, he wasn't afraid anymore.

(Mom and Caillou laugh)

Storyteller: And pretty soon, it was time for lunch. (batches of hamburger on buns)

Mom: Mmmmm! Something smells awfully good. I could eat a horse.

Dad: Well, I could eat a moose.

(kids giggle)

Rosie: Moose! Moose!

Caillou: Look!

Mom: Oh, no, a chipmunk. Shoo! Shoo! (Chipmunk taken a dibs of hamburger buns)

(Caillou and Rosie giggle)

Dad: We really shouldn't feed the wild animals, Caillou. (Caillou got the dibs on hamburger bun)

Caillou: Why?

Dad: Because they have to get their food from the forest. (Caillou eats a dib of hamburger bun)

Mom: What are you two doing this afternoon?

Dad: We're going mountain climbing.

Caillou: Yeah!

Dad: That's it, Caillou. Keep going. You're doing great.

(Caillou slips)

Dad: Are you okay?

Storyteller: Caillou was frightened when he slipped, but he wanted Daddy to see how brave he was.

Dad: We're almost there. Look.

(He and Caillou get to the top)

Caillou: Oh!

Dad: We did it! I'm very proud of you.

(The sun sets, and Caillou and Dad are sleeping in the hammock)

(Dad snores)

Mom: I guess mountain climbing must be hard work.

Rosie: (giggles)

Mom: Come on, guys. It's bedtime. Everything's ready in the trailer.

Caillou: I want to stay in the hammock.

Dad: It would be fun to sleep outside.

Mom: Okay then.

Storyteller: Caillou loved sleeping in the hammock in his Daddy's arms.

(owl hoots)

Mom: Night-night. Sleep tight.

Caillou and Dad: Don't let the bedbugs bite.


(Morning comes, and Caillou is the first one awake.)

Caillou: (gasps) Huh?

Storyteller: Caillou was very impressed by the moose. He had never seen such a big animal before.

Caillou: Mommy, Mommy! Come and see! Daddy! Daddy, look!

Dad: Oh, wow!

(Mom and Rosie come out in their pajamas)

Dad: Shhh! We have to be as quiet as mice. Remember, moose are very shy.

(The family is quiet)

Caillou: (whispers) It's a moose.

Rosie: (yells) Moose! Moose!

(the moose goes away)

Rosie: Moose gone. (giggles)

(The whole family laughs)

Storyteller: Caillou thought it was funny that such a big animal could be frightened away by a little girl like Rosie.
