Celebrate National S'mores Day on Aug. 10

S'mores have long been a staple around the campfire, but did you know this delicious treat is rooted in Girl Scout history? That's right! The recipe for s'mores dates back to the 1925 Girl Scout Leader magazine and the 1927 Girl Scouts of the USA handbook, “Tramping and Trailing with the Girl Scouts,” which featured a "Some More" recipe.

Aug. 10 is National S’mores Day, and to celebrate, all K-12 girls and their families are invited to make their own tasty s'mores during our special events in Edinboro, Clearfield, Johnstown and Pittsburgh from 5-7 p.m. At these open events, which are FREE to the public, girls, and their families, you can also enjoy hot dogs, fun activities, and learn more about Girl Scouts and our mission of building courage, confidence, and character in girls.

Know someone who is interested in joining Girl Scouts?  Girls can bring friends to National S’mores Day to show her all the fun she can have as a Girl Scout. Your Girl Scout will receive a special Invite-a-Friend reward if her friend signs up at the event.

Plus, girls will get a free National S'mores Day patch if they're registered for the 2017-18 Girl Scout year or if they register to join Girl Scouts at the event! Council staff will be on hand at the National S’mores Day events to help girls renew or sign up. Those interested in becoming a volunteer are also invited to attend.
