Scouts of America S'Mores

It’s official! The Girl Scouts of Middle Tennessee (GSMIDTN) officially holds the Guinness World Record for most people simultaneously making s’mores with 801 people.

To celebrate National S’mores Day on August 10, 2018, over 1,000 people came to Holy Family Catholic Church in Brentwood to help GSMIDTN break the Guinness World Record. The previous record was set by Metroparks Toledo and was held at 566 people.

The idea to break the record came from the long history Girl Scouts have of making s’mores. The first Girls Scouts s’mores recipe was published in 1927 in Tramping and Trailing with the Girl Scouts. The recipe is still a favorite campfire treat.

Girl Scouts of Middle Tennessee serves more than 14,000 girls and 6,000 adult volunteers in 39 counties. It is a part of Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA), the world’s preeminent organization for girls, with a membership of more than 2.6 million girls and adults nationwide. GSUSA continues to strive to build girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.
