Wilson County Girl Scouts converged on Camp Mira Sol in Waring the weekend of September 20 to attend the “How to Survive a Zombie Invasion” campout. The girls learned survival skills they can use in real-life situations while they pretended to be stalked by costumed zombies.

Cadette, Senior, and Ambassador Girl Scouts arrived on a rainy Friday evening and watched zombie movies to set the mood. There were five girls from Troop 2532 in Poth, 12 girls from Troop 559 in Floresville, and six girls from Troop 3013 in La Vernia.

They awoke to a bright sunny Saturday morning and began the day meeting with a deputy from the Kendall County Sheriff’s Department. She taught them about personal safety and tips for staying safe while home alone. Then they began their zombie skills. They were taught how to stalk and move quietly through an area. The girls also practiced applying camouflage face paint, and each girl assembled a personal first-aid kit.

Saturday afternoon the Scouts were able to put their newly learned zombie skills to the test. They were stalked by zombies and practiced their skills at escaping zombie attacks. The object was to stay human and recover the most hidden treasures (Twinkies).

Later in the afternoon, they learned about edible plants and went out on a scavenger hunt around the camp to locate seven such edible plants. The prize was, of course, Girl Scout cookies! There was even time for the girls to go swimming in the camp pool.

The night ended with a campfire, a sing-a-long, s’mores, and star gazing, and the Girl Scouts learned about navigating using the stars and moon.
