How to Do the “If I Weren’t a Scout” Skit

The “If I weren’t a scout” skit is a funny staple at many scout camps.

Basically, the skit involves at least 5 people who line up and each share what profession they would take on if they weren’t a scout instead. Each one has a short song they sing and an associated action. The skit becomes funny when they combine together and scouts are swinging things at each other and narrowly missing.

Be aware that this skit can involve a certain amount of risk. You may want to get a plastic or rubber shovel or hammer to make the skit safe. We did it with the real tools, but spent many hours rehearsing to make it safe.

Perform this skit at your own risk and only with parental supervision.

You’ll see that the skit starts to get funny at the 3:15 mark where all of the swinging actions start to come together into one.

You can easily use your own creativity to change the song verses to cater to your own preferences. You can have between 4-9 people performing this skit before it gets too long.
