I am excited to announce that I was selected to be a Camp Counselor for HERSHEY’S CAMP BONDFIRE this week! Visit HERSHEY’S Facebook Page and click the CAMP BONDFIRE tab where you can learn all about our recent CAMPFIRE GATHER ROUND as well as tips for hosting your own fun campfire party.
Each week throughout the summer two bloggers will be featured as Camp Counselors and will showcase their ideas, activities, photos, videos, and Pinterest boards around their weekly theme. It’s a fantastic place to get party ideas for the summer!
At our CAMPFIRE GATHER ROUND we had a wonderful time getting together with Kora and Logan’s grandparents and cousins. We started our campfire early in the day and later had to move inside. Throughout it all the S’mores were the hit of the party!
While there are many unique s’mores recipes out there we kept it simple and traditional. We roasted marshmallows over our fire pit and then rested them on top of a block of HERSHEY’S Milk Chocolate and sandwiched it all between two graham crackers.
Here’s a quick video of Kora and Logan thoughts on the S’mores they enjoyed before the party – don’t tell their cousins! :)
Our CAMPFIRE GATHER ROUND was a fun get together and a wonderful way to celebrate summer.
To prepare for the event I browsed the internet for campfire ideas and saved all of my favorites to my CAMPFIRE GATHER ROUND Pinterest board.
We really had a fantastic time at our campfire party and my favorite memories are those of the kids all having fun together.
One particular memory that stood out was once as Kora was eating her S’more and as she took a bite, the marshmallow stretched and stretched and stretched! She lifted the S’more as high as she could to see how far it would go. It went higher than her head and it had all the kids laughing! It was so cute!
- August 10th is National S’mores Day – Yum!
- S’mores originated from the words “Some More”
- The first printed recipe for S’mores appeared in a Girl Scouts handbook in 1927
- Milton Hershey first introduced the HERSHEY’S Milk Chocolate Bar in 1900
We had a fantastic time at our CAMPFIRE GATHER ROUND and I’m thrilled to be this week’s HERSHEY’S CAMP BONDFIRE Camp Counselor.
