99 Scout Skit Ideas (Organized by Prep Time and Humor)

Between all the writers at Scoutorama and the many contributors to this skit database, hundreds of years of scouting experience has gone into creating this resource for you. With a little bit of adaptation, these skits can be used for church groups, scout troops, youth groups, and anyone looking for a fun time.

Our 21 Favorite Scout Skits of All Time

We’ll start the list of 100 skits with the funniest ones we’ve ever seen. Some of these are complicated and take a lot of time and props to be ready. Others you can throw together in 5 minutes. We tried to strike a balance of showing some that are unique and hilarious, and others that are very popular and well known, but probably only good enough for a chuckle.
