Say Yes to More S'mores and Getting Girls Outdoors


Yesterday on National S’mores Day, Girl Scouts of the U.S.A. announced that crowd favorite Girl Scout S’mores™ will return from 2017 to the 2018 Girl Scout Cookie season lineup. Last season, Girl Scout S’mores became the most popular flavor to launch in the 100 years of Girl Scouts selling cookies—can you believe they out-sold even Thin Mints?

We're already counting down the days till next cookie season, and Girl Scouts from across the Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council and the country are ready to bring you this crispy graham cookie double dipped in a crème icing and enrobed in a chocolatey coating. 


Girl Scouts have been making S'mores since the 1920s. We pride our ability to get girls outdoors and have fun--and a treat--while we do it.  This month, Girl Scouts also announced that we will be introducing seven, count it seven, new outdoor badges. Last month,  we introduced 23 new badges, including the outdoor badges which will focus on building outdoor skills. 

In fact, according to our Girl Scout Impact Report, Girl Scouts are almost twice as likely as their non–Girl Scout peers to participate in outdoor activities. Which is one of the reasons why Girl Scouts helps to build girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place.
