SILVERADO – Games, crafts and plenty of S’mores.

Girl Scouts from across Orange County celebrated National S’mores Day and participated in a volunteer-run Irvine Day Camp at Lakeview Park in Silverado, Thursday, Aug. 10.

From 1 to 3 p.m., 180 scouts roasted S’mores, made crafts and played games such as “blob tag” and tug-of-war, in coordination with the camp’s theme of Beyond the Reef: Polynesian Voyage. The Girl Scouts also practiced CPR and life-saving skills throughout the afternoon.

During the event, the girls learned about Polynesian culture by exploring the regions many stories, foods, outdoor skills, animals, songs and games.

The Local Community Day Camps are provided by Girl Scouts of Orange County volunteers between June and August, allowing girls to enjoy fun in the outdoors where they can learn and grow in a safe and secure environment. While at the camps, girls develop healthy relationships and learn to promote cooperation and team-building through a variety of activities, officials said.

The Girl Scouts of the USA also recently announced that the Girl Scout S’mores cookie will return for the 2018 Girl Scout Cookie season lineup.
