                     Welcome to the Zombie Apocalypse
Dear Scouts and Scouters,
You are cordially invited to attend the 2018 Akela District Fall Camporee, Zombie Apocalypse. The dates are
November 2nd – November 4th at Woodfield West. We have a great weekend planned for you if you can
survive! This leaders guide will provide you with details of each event along with the schedule for the
weekend.

Zombies have invaded the camp and no one is truly safe. Scouts will need to test their skills in hopes of making
it through the weekend. Scouts will be challenged in emergency first aid, lashings, fire building, orienteering,
and a foot race to keep one step ahead of the zombies. As the theme is the Zombie Apocalypse, all events are
zombie themed. The day will wrap up with a full-scale zombie vs human battle and a Dutch Oven Potluck
dinner (this works best if each Patrol cooks a dish).

Registration is open to all Boy Scout Troops in the district, this is also a great event to bring your Arrow of Light
Dens. Registration includes a really cool patch, and you can order shirts for just $9.00 each. Shirts are pre-
order only and are expected to be a great collector’s items.

We are excited to be able to host this year’s event and look forward to seeing you all there!

                       Introduction to the Zombie Apocalypse
Zombies have taken over Woodfield West scout camp and it is now up to our Scouts to stay safe and take back
the camp. Over the course of the weekend each patrol will test their skills while evading the Zombies and
doing their best to stay alive. Scouts will need to safely navigate a course (orienteering) while steering clear of
Zombies as they will encounter several scenarios along their way. These scenarios include delivering
emergency first aid to a zombie attack victim, building a fire to keep the zombies at bay, constructing a
barricade to fortify your camp against attack and running a foot race to get to safety. The day will culminate
with the ultimate battle for survival to take back the camp back.

Patrols will be scored on each event (see scoring sheets for details)
First Aid
Fire Building
Orienteering
Lashings
Foot Race

All Patrols should have a “Ready Bag” that includes all items your patrol may need to successfully complete
challenges. If Patrols need to borrow items to complete a challenge, they will lose points. Items that you may
want to have in your bag include:
Compass
First Aid Kit – think what you may need for an emergency
Ropes / Twine for knots and lashings
Items to start a fire (no matches or lighters)

Bonus Point Opportunities (see scoring sheets for details)
    -   Canned food drive – bring a minimum of 1 can for each scout/leader.
    -   Each troop that provides a leader to help run an event will receive bonus points.
    -   Performing a skit at the Saturday Night campfire - zombie themed skits get more points.

                          Zombie Apocalypse Event Detail
First Aid
The Zombies have left your patrol wounded. You must complete 6 challenges to recover to full strength. Use items from
your “Ready Bag” to help solve each first aid scenario before starting the next one. You can ask for up to three hints but
you will be penalized points. Fastest times that get to a full recovery scores the most points so time is of essence.

Fire Building
Your patrol has been cut off from civilization and is isolated. Zombies are scurrying around and the only thing keeping
them away is a fire. Your task is to build a fire using items from your “Ready Bag”. Matches are available but will cost you
points. Patrols must build their fires as quickly as possible and the flame needs to burn through a rope to guarantee your
fire is large enough to deter the Zombies from entering your area.

Orienteering
Zombies have hidden the cure around the forest. It’s your task to find it and get back to the starting point the fastest
while being quiet to not alert the Zombies. Use a compass from your “Ready Bag”, your best orienteering skills and
knowledge to find the cure by solving trivia questions to advance through the course. You must also know how to
measure distance, height, and direction to find the cure before becoming a Zombie.

Lashings
Your patrol will build a barricade or fort to be used during the End Battle with different knots and lashings as a defense
against the Zombies. The more types of lashing or knots used, the more points you’ll collect. You will spend 10-15
minutes reviewing the Clove Hitch and Timber Hitch knots along with Square, Sheer, and Diagonal lashings. You will then
have 30-40min to construct a barricade, fort, etc. using the knots and lashings just learned. If your patrol needs
assistance completing a lashing or knot, your patrol will lose points. Complete your barricade before the time expires to
achieve the maximum defense against the Zombies. Points will be deducted if knots are not tied correctly.

Foot Race
Scouts must outrun the zombies while using their knowledge of scout skills to help save the camp. Only the
fastest scouts will survive. Each patrol will have a relay team of 4 scouts. Each scout will run one leg of the
race and answer a scout skill question before they can hand off the baton to the next scout. Each wrong
answer given will result in 10 seconds being added to their final race time.

                                      The Zombie Feast
It’s time for a feast!! You have survived the Zombie Apocalypse! We will all break bread together to celebrate
our victory over the Zombies. This “potluck” meal is returning by popular demand. Bring your favorite Dutch
Oven meal, dessert or side dish to share.

Important reminder:
Make sure to cook enough for your troop plus a little extra to share. Bring your dish and share your meal with
other Zombies.

If you are also participating in the Dutch Oven cooking contest let us know at the SPL / Leader meeting on
Friday. We will have a time designated for you to present your entry.
