Girl Scouts Hope to Break Guinness World Record

Girl Scouts Middle TN Smores Guinness World Record

Girl Scouts of Middle Tennessee (GSMIDTN) is planning on breaking the Guinness World Record for most people making s’mores simultaneously on August 10 for National S’mores Day.

GSMIDTN already has more people signed up than the current record of 566 people, held by Metroparks Toledo. While this is a Girl Scout event, anyone can attend to become part of Guinness World Record.

Girl Scouts have been making s’mores since before 1927 when the first recipe was published in Tramping and Trailing with the Girl Scouts.  Making s’mores is still a Girl Scout camping tradition as girls still sit around a fire and bond with each other.

Girl Scout volunteer Stephanie McDaniel says,  “Making s’mores is such a fun part of every Girl Scout camping experience. Since we started it all, of course, we want to attempt to break the record!”

The Girl Scouts will gather at Holy Family Catholic Church in Brentwood Friday evening hoping to break the Guinness World Record. Learn more at
