Zombie Skit

Often at Scout camp, each unit will be asked to put on a skit. Every time I went to Cub Scout Camp with my second oldest son’s Webelos den, they lobbied hard for this zombie skit. Whenever they had a chance to do a skit, this one was tops on their list. I don’t know why.

Lesson of This Zombie Skit

I can’t say there is any lesson to be learned from this skit other than don’t forget to bring your tent.

Maybe you could start with some humor and then lead into a discussion about leadership.

Zombie Skit


  • Scout
  • Scout Leader
  • Everyone else is a zombie


  • Tent if you have one. Two extra scouts holding up a tarp make a great tent. Otherwise just have an “invisible” tent

The Zombie Skit

Scout Leader: Why didn’t you bring a tent?

Scout: I thought you were bringing a tent for me!

Scout Leader: You’ll just have to sleep under the stars.

The Scout Leader goes into his tent. The Scout lies down outside. The zombies come in making zombie noises.

Zombie: Look there’s a guy sleeping on the ground. Let’s get him!

The zombies chase the Scout around a few times and run off.

Scout: Help! Help!

Scout Leader: What?

Scout: A bunch of zombies came and chased me.

Scout Leader: Well, they’re gone, so go back to sleep.

They both go back to sleep. The zombies comes back in making lots of noise.

Zombie: Look! He went back to sleep. Let’s get him again!

The zombies chase the Scout again and then run off.

Scout: Help! Help!

Scout Leader: What is it now?

Scout: They came back and chased me again.

Scout Leader: They left again, so just go back to sleep.

Scout: I can’t. I’m scared! What if they come back?

Scout Leader: OK, you sleep in the tent and I’ll sleep outside.

They switch places and go back to sleep. The zombies comes back in, making lots of noise.

Zombie: Look, he’s asleep again. Let’s get him!

Zombie: No, we already tried to get the guy outside the tent twice. Let’s get the guy inside the tent this time.

They chase the Scout out of the tent and run around after him a third time and leave. The Scout throws his hands up in the air and runs off screaming.
